Space Weather News for Dec. 21, 2008

URSID METEORS: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from comet
8P/Tuttle and this is causing the annual Ursid meteor shower.
Forecasters expect the Ursids to peak on Dec. 22nd with 8 to 10
meteors per hour flying out of the constellation Ursa Minor (the
Little Dipper) not far from the north star.  The display is usually
mild, but outbursts of Ursids occasionally surprise observers with
rates many times normal. The last time this happened was in 2006.

Standing outdoors to watch Ursids in December can be a chilling
experience. So why not stay inside and listen? Spaceweather.com is
broadcasting live audio from the Air Force Space Surveillance Radar in
Texas. When a meteor passes over the facility--"ping"--there is an
echo. Because the Ursid radiant is circumpolar (always up) over the
radar, the echoes may be heard at any hour, night or day. Tune in to

simultaneous listeners.
