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.
Astronomy Cast is a weekly podcast hosted by Fraser Cain from Universe Today, and Dr. Pamela Gay (of Slacker Astronomy fame). Each week we take a fact-based journey through the cosmos to explain the discoveries in astronomy, and understand how we know what we know.
