Iran - (Shaikh, Rattle & Roll-over): Stargazers monitoring Iranian airspace paths of the annual Perseid meteor shower are gobsmacked.
The cosmic lightshow emanating from the constellation Persia is wreaking havoc with Tuesday's new moon, herald of Ramadan that starts mid-week.
Seers fear the resulting gravitational pull may trigger heirline fractures in the renegade former Peacock Throne's Pahlavi dynasty.
Ex-monarchy members are long suspected of having a stranglehold over Iranian nuclear bomb factory sites at Anorak (sic) and Arak (hic).
The former is situated near the town of Yazd where a 100MeV Rhodotron TT200 beam line output accelerator is arming 'fictional' warheads.
The latter, named after an potent Iraqi alcoholic beverage distilled from aniseed polymers, lies at the notorious 34.3734°N/49.2408°E faultline shielding satanists in the Iranian morality police.
Last week UK Prime Monster David Cameron warned that Iran nuke bomb factories were at it again.
UK Anti-Terror cops meanwhile reckon former Persian secret service operatives from the now defunct Savak Corps (sic) are behind the multi-billion dollar scams attributed to Bernie 'Ponzi' Madoff.
Tuesday's brilliant Leo new moon takes place at 3.08GMT.
