When you star gaze you will often find falling stars, or meteors, entering our atmosphere and burning up. It is a natural, and rather common, sight to see though it does seem to happen more in the winter months than the summer months. Most burn up before they hit the earth but some do get through. The most famous occurred in Siberia in 1908 which cut a path through 40 miles of territory destroying trees, a few buildings and knocking some people out. That happened on June 30th and probably is the reason for today becoming Meteor Day.
How to celebrate – Star gaze tonight. Visit sites where meteors have landed. Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket.
