image for Perseid Shower blocks view of Meteors
If you want to be able to see meteors, you need to clean all this crap off your window.

Astrologers all over the country are dismayed this evening after their view of spectacular meteors was blocked out by a Perseid Shower. The meteors are usually viewable for two nights at this time of year, but tonight proved not to be one.

A group calling themselves the Manchester Meteor Watchers managed to spot two before their view was ruined. They later accepted that one of their 'spots' was actually a 737.

A man in Peterborough who told his wife he was popping out for a Swift Tuttle was most disappointed when he failed to observe any meteors at all. Local police suggested that his view may have been obscured by his twenty-year-old neighbour's bathroom window, where a nose print was found on the glass.

In Durham, a man out trying to observe meteors was hit and killed by a tiny red hot stone that hit him at phenomenal speed.

The Met Office has refused to comment on the Perseid Shower and why they failed to predict it.
