SUMMARY: A judge blocked an Indiana law requiring residents to upload IDs to access porn sites, labeling it “facially unconstitutional.” Senate Bill 17, set to take effect on July 1, demanded age verification via sensitive documents like driver's licenses for explicit content.

The Free Speech Coalition sued, advocating for adults' rights to access the internet freely.

SUMMARY: The Perseid meteor shower, an annual celestial event, peaks around August 11-12, 2024. Visible from July 14 to September 1, this year's peak coincides with a first quarter moon setting around midnight, providing optimal dark-sky conditions. The shower, originating from comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, can produce 50 to 100 meteors per hour, featuring light trails and occasional fireballs. Meteors, often mistaken for shooting stars, are debris burning in Earth's atmosphere. For the best view, head to areas with minimal light pollution and watch during the moon's darkest phases, preferably in the pre-dawn hours, although they are also visible in the evening.
