The Sky is Falling! Read about meteorites

Last Friday, February 15, a meteorite streamed across the skies above Russia. According to a New York Times article, the meteorite was 10 feet across traveling at 10-12 miles per second. The shock wave from the rock hitting the earth's atmosphere caused windows to break and injured more than 1,000 people.

Find out more about cosmic debris, meteors, and space. Check out the book display at the St. Paul library.
