More than 78 Perseid fireballs since July 27, 2015.
You think that’s worrying? Well, look at how much space junk is orbiting the Earth!
[quote_box_center]Earth is entering a stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, source of the annual Perseid meteor shower. Peak rates of 100+ meteors per hour are expected next week when Earth approaches the heart of the debris stream. The display, however, is already underway.[/quote_box_center]
SINCE JULY 27TH, MORE THAN 78 pERSEIDS FIREBALLS HAVE BEEN RECORDED BY THE NASA’S ALL SKY FIREBALL NETWORK:
But there is something much more alarming. The following Youtube video shows “objects in Earth orbit that are currently being tracked. Approximately 95% of the objects in this illustration are orbital debris, i.e., not functional satellites.”
So are you more scared about fireballs or these rotating space debris?
