Fire in the Night Sky

April 1, 2011

Do you enjoy watching for meteors in the night sky?  Now is the time of year that there is an increase in fireballs in the night sky.  Science does not yet understand why but we can still enjoy what we do not understand.

SpaceWeather.com posted the following and gave a link to the NASA site that records the activity each night, so if you cannot go outside and see for yourself, you can always check it out on NASA’s site:

It’s a beautiful display, but where do they come from? NASA’s growing network of fireball cameras is scanning the heavens for answers: full story.
