What is meteor shower?
Have you ever witnessed a meteor shower or would you want to watch it?
The truth is you are not seeing the actual particle from space, but the reaction of the gases in our atmosphere as they react to friction caused by this rapidly moving object as it falls through the sky above you. Most meteors completely burn up in the atmosphere at altitudes of between 60 and 80 miles.
A meteor shower is simply meteors burning up as they enter our atmosphere. I just saw a falling star this morning on my way to work, and made a wish on it.
