Perseid Photo Challenge
« on: August 13, 2006, 09:04:43 am »

This weekend provides one of the year's best opportunities to see "shooting stars". The annual Perseid meteor display is expected to peak on Friday and Saturday night. Meteors are bits of dust or rock that plunge into the Earth's atmosphere and burn up, making bright streaks in the sky. It does not take a large object to produce a visible meteor most are the size of a grain of sand or a small pebble.

Caveat: shooting stars are not nearly as bright as a full moon!!!
