Description:

This animation allows middle and high school Earth science students to view a simulated meteor shower. The introduction explains how meteor showers occur when Earth passes through the tail of a comet. The animation, which illustrates the Perseid meteor showers, shows students how to locate the radiant near the constellation Perseus. It then presents a time-compressed view of a series of meteors shooting across the sky. Movie controls allow students to repeat, pause, or step through the animation, which can give students more time to analyze the images. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
