Shooting Stars and Meteor Showers

Shooting Stars and Meteor Showers

Presented by UWM Manfred Olson Planetarium at Online/Virtual Space

Many know shooting stars for the striking trails of light they give off, but their name is misleading since they are neither shooting nor stars. These light trails, also known as meteors, are fragments of either comets or asteroids. Find out how to witness these mesmerizing light trails for yourself! We’ll take questions at the end of the program through the chat. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
