Hunter Meteor Storm

10/21/2010

S3E2
Duke finds an article in a Haven Herald detailing the Orion constellation and the timing of the next Hunter Meteor Storm.

In the article, it is reported that it up the sky for the first time in more than 27 years and is written in past tense, though referencing a date in 2010, thus implying that the last meteor shower was in the very recent past.

A few seconds later you can see the front of the newspaper again, and it appears to be the same as the one Duke was reading dated 1983, so maybe it was a production goof.
