Rob, it's great that you look for interesting articles to post here (and this is a really good one), but it would be nice if you would at least indicate the location of the original post.
I wish the peak of these showers wasn't always so early am....tooooo many nights I have spent freezing my sleepy butt off waiting to see a few good ones! Tonight seems like a nice clear night though, maybe I'll throw my coat on before I go to bed & hope to see one or two.
With the large cluster of new stars forming, how can it be determined that the supposed rogue planet within the cluster doesn't belong to one of the 30 or so stars? I guess I'm confused because if it's part of a cluster that involves 30 or so stars, then how can there be no star close by? Perhaps all of the young stars have such a dense, complex gravitational pull that the planet really is being pulled in various ways that make it appear rogue. Interesting, but confusing.
