Creative Inspiration of the Day: Meteors

Sleeping under the Perseids meteor shower

Who: Meteors!
Noun, def: an atmospheric phenomenon (such as lightning or a snowfall); or any of the small particles of matter in the solar system that are directly observable only by their incandescence from frictional heating on entry into the atmosphere.

What: Perseid meteor shower

When: Summer nights, between July 14th to August 24th depending on when the earth travels through the trail that year

Where: Best viewing is in the Northern Hemisphere

Why: The Perseids meteor shower appears when Earth passes through the rubble left by Comet Swift-Tuttle.

How: When comets come around the sun, they leave a dusty trail behind them. Meteors come from leftover comet trails and from broken asteroids. When the Earth runs into these dusty bits, they will burn up in the atmosphere creating fiery and colorful streaks in the sky.
