June 30th National Meteor Day

If you like watching the sky today you have added reasons to watch, it’s National Meteor Day! In many areas it’s actually called Meteor Watch Day but who cares, it’s the same difference. The idea is to watch for meteors, remember the “Catch a falling a star and put it in your pocket”? Well, you might not want to really do that. On June 30th, 1908 a meteor hit Siberia and wiped out tress for forty miles! Try and put that one in your pocket! The most visible seems to be the Perseid Meteor Shower, which won’t reach it’s maximum activity until August so you may want to set up a cot cause you might be there for a while. Remember to wish on whatever you see falling unless that happens to be an airplane… then it’s time to pray.

How to celebrate – Watch the night sky for meteors. Make a list of what you would wish for in case you see more than one! Get out of the way if you see a meteor coming in your direction.
