Mount Palomar, CA (IPP)- The International Astronomical Union (IAU) has issued a recall for the Leonid meteor shower which originally had been scheduled for the nights of November 17th and 18th.

Dr. Povenmire Finootch is the self appointed president for life of the IAU. The IAU operates from the Mount Palomar Observatory Campus (MPOC) which has buildings and observatories scattered throughout the Mount Palomar region. Dr. Finootch is well known for being the person responsible for the recent demotion of Pluto from planetary status to a mere member of the Oort Cloud.

Dr. Finootch told reporters that hopefully a new set of meteors could be ordered from the Meteor Production Facility which is based near the Norton-Thiokol solid fuel manufacturing facility in Utah. The meteors being recalled are too large and could cause more damage than usual. All persons in possession of the current batch of Leonid meteors are being asked to return them back the the dealerships from which they came. Dr. Finootch says that the Leonid Meteor shower will be rescheduled for the nights of November 24th and 25th.
