Today is Meteor Watch Day

Hopefully the weather will be clear tonight so that you can do some watching. I hope you will see some!

Have you ever seen a comet or a shooting star? You may think they look pretty, but these giant space rocks can cause major destruction. Scientists keep a close watch on comets and asteroids using high-powered telescopes and spacecraft. Get ready to learn lots of far-out facts about asteroids and comets!

Check out Far-Out Guide to Asteroids and Comets, written by Mary Kay Carson for the upper elementary/lower middle school reader. It's available in both library and paperback!
