Spring Fireballs....They're Hereeeeee!

All Sky Fireball Network

Every night, a network of NASA all-sky cameras scans the skies above the United States for meteoritic fireballs. Automated software maintained by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office calculates their orbits, velocity, penetration depth in Earth's atmosphere and many other characteristics. Daily results are presented here on Spaceweather.com.

On May. 6, 2014, the network reported 28 fireballs.
(21 sporadics, 7 eta Aquariids)

In this diagram of the inner solar system, all of the fireball orbits intersect at a single point--Earth. The orbits are color-coded by velocity, from slow (red) to fast (blue).


  1. Hi Slaade, deal! I sent you some rain and you sent me more sun.Wish we could do this.My kitty was fysically very quick running again on her 4 legs after the operation, but didn't eat the first 10 days. Then started to eat little bit, and not the food she used to eat. So one day she gains weight and the next day she loses weight. So every day struggle to make her eat. It's getting little bit better every day.Since one week she eats again little bit dry food.I think she got a trauma from the operation.Love to you.Lux

  2. Glad to hear kitty is on all 4 paws. Cats are sensitive. Trauma will soon pass. Try a little fresh fish. My cat is busy trying to disturb the neighborhood birds that are building nests. He has been very vocal about being locked inside LOL. Much love and warm wishes sent you way...with a little sunshine :) Slaade
