ISS Starts Meteor Observing Project
Hey Space Placers!
I hope you got to see the Perseids. For me it was an average shower from my location. Out of 400+ pics I got 1 decent one of a Perseid & the Milky Way Galaxy.

A far better view of worldwide meteors is being done on the International Space Station (ISS) for the next two years. This project will give an idea of the composition and number of meteors which enter our planet's atmosphere. The data will be very important in answering these heretofore estimates only questions.
