… that today is Meteor Watch Day? Look up at the skies and behold the wonder of nature’s fireworks! When space debris, such as pieces of rock, enter the earth’s atmosphere, the friction causes the surrounding air to become scorching hot — giving us the “shooting star” effect of a meteor. It is estimated that about 20 to 25 million meteors weighing about 100 tons in total enter the Earth’s atmosphere every day!
