You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just fall down to Earth as we orbit by,
‘Cause, baby, you’re a meteor
Heat up the air and start to burn.
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y!
That’s how the lyrics go, right? Botched culture references aside, make sure to look up into the sky this weekend. Every year about this time, the Earth passes through a cloud of space debris called the “Gemenids”: the remnants of an extinct asteroid called 3200 Phaethon. The showers have been going on all week, but the best is yet to come! The best viewing is supposed to be this Saturday night, so grab a friend and a warm jacket and enjoy the show!
