Dress warmly, gather some friends and family, and head outside to watch sand burn in the upper atmosphere. There’s nothing like a good meteor shower. Fraser and Pamela explain this beautiful phenomenon: what causes them, the best storms and showers to watch for, and different types of meteors you might see.

    Salutations!
    I’ve started listening to your older episodes again, your podcast is very helpful by the way, thanks guys.
    I recently got directed to an online video of what appears to be a meteorite. How big would this particular space rock be, assuming it is one, and it also seemed to have moved very slowly or could that just be the camera’s frame rate?

    And Pamela mentions in this episode that rocks with a diameter of 50m will even reach the Earth’s surface. Won’t these size rocks be considered NEO’s, or was that a mistake?
    Cheers again for all the effort!
