Perseid Meteor Shower Shooting Stars

PERSEID METEOR SHOWER  Rainbow Colored Shooting Stars - August 12, 2002

Perseid meteors are fast and colorful shooting stars often rich in bright meteors with long-lasting trains and can be seen all across the night sky. During the peak of the shower, the rate of meteors typically reaches 60 - 80 per hour. The Perseid Meteor Shower is primarily visible in the northern hemisphere and with all meteor showers, the rate is greatest in the pre-dawn hours. Clear night skies in deserts and high altitudes (far from urban light pollution) are best for viewing the Perseids.   Location: Sedona, Arizona

AURORA BOREALIS IN CALIFORNIA - November 5, 2001

A powerful coronal mass ejection billowed away from the Sun on November 4 and swept past our planet on the following day. The impact was followed by severe geomagnetic storm conditions and visible auroral activity as far south as Florida, Texas and California. The Northern Lights are rarely seen at low latitudes, occurring only 3 - 6 times during the 11-year solar cycle.    Location: Lake Berryessa, California
