That's really neat, so do you think the meteor showers are pre-programmed into the sim to happen on the correct dates, or do you think it's random??I have only seen the Aurora Borealis and that was in FS2004.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian

Here's list of meteor showers;http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_meteor_showersLook for the ZHR colums to see the yearly strongest showers. Perhaps we should watch in FSX to see on those nights ;-) The flight sim meteor's trajectories theoretically should appear to be coming from the constellations for which these showers are named. If you know your constellations, you could tell within FSX if they are supposed to be a known shower or just randome everyday meteors.
