Wish Upon A Star, More Meteor Showers Expected Tonight
Have you seen your first falling star of 2013?
Gailen told me today that he saw a meteor early this morning on his way in for the KING morning show. There should be plenty more to see if we have clear skies overnight in the area.
According to Space.com, the annual meteor shower you can view tonight is caused by an asteroid known as 2003 EH1 which is leaving behind debris that is burned up in the Earth’s atmosphere, causing bright ‘falling stars.’
A photographer in Ohio captured some pictures recently from his home observatory of the Quadrantid Meteor Shower.If you happen to be out during the overnight hours, keep glancing up, you might be able to make your first wish upon a falling star for 2013.
