Although the Perseid Meteor Shower has been going on all this week, now that the moon is entering the waning crescent phase the night sky is darker, and the meteors stand out. From grains of sand to the mere pebble to perhaps as big as a walnut, the Perseid Meteor Shower is full of what looks like ‘shooting stars’ even if it is merely debris that travels space; left from fragments of the comet Swift-Tuttle breaking away as she flies through the galaxy. (Perseid hails from the Perseus Constellation.)
FINALLY– Fun Fact: Meteors seem to come in different colors. Fact is it depends on what atmospheric gases the meteor goes through.
