Shooting Stars and Media Register Online

Many know shooting stars for the striking trails of light they give off, but their name is misleading since they are not shooting nor are they stars. These light trails, also known as meteors, are fragments of either comets or asteroids. When our Earth travels through the orbit of a comet, we are treated to a dazzling meteor shower. Dr. Jean Creighton, Director of the UWM Planetarium, will describe how and when are the best times to see shooting stars. All are welcome, although the program is targeted for those ages five and older. For questions, please email planetarium@uwm.edu
