ANCIENT COSMIC DEBRIS TO STREAK NIGHT SKIES

Looking for some dirt-cheap entertainment Sunday night? Just look up in the sky.

The annual Perseids meteor shower that will peak that evening is caused by nothing more than, well, flying dirt - tiny meteors that will hit Earth's atmosphere at a high rate of speed and then leave streaks on the skyscape as they burn up. SJMN
