Meteor Watch Day

National Meteor Day
Perseid meteor shower and the Milky Way over Cedar Breaks National Monument, UT.

National Meteor Watch Day honors meteors, a small body of matter that enters our atmosphere with a shooting star effect. You can celebrate National Meteor Watch Day by searching the stars. In fact, why not call up┬áa loved one┬áand plan a romantic date. And even if you can’t see the stars or there isn’t a meteor shower where you live, that shouldn’t stop you from celebrating this day. Instead, try researching meteors instead. You can learn new facts at the American Meteor Society. Their website has photos and videos of meteors and fireballs,┬áanother term for a very bright meteor.
