Major Meteor Showers (shooting Stars) for 2014

Meteor showers 2014  -bg2

Here’s a list of major Meteor Showers that many of us are going to be able to observe in 2014.

I  set up facebook events for a few (in the later half of 2013) and it was popular ..as in people were happy to get the info and go out and check on those respective nights..  So have set up `Events’ for these ones on my facebook profile..   Just click, join or don’t join..  as long as you get out and look 🙂

Info for each one is gathered from a variety of Scientific sources freely published online by various organisations.  (will reference it later).

Enjoy..

Stellar Wishes
