Watching meteors hit the Earth is strangely relaxing

The website LiveMeteors.com is one of those things that is curiously addictive, especially if you’re still off work poorly as I am and don’t have the concentration to do anything more stressful but make a cup of tea. Essentially the site monitors objects entering the Earth’s atmosphere, be it meteor, space debris or anything else so when watching the live feed, you’ll get a near constant stream of small pings as objects enter the atmosphere with the occasional larger tone as something bigger than a teaspoon hits the Earth.

Of course such a site is open season for UFO hunters and even though on the front page of the site gives a scientific reason for the ridiculously long and heavy results you sometimes get, that isn’t stopping people from believing the truth is out there.

But this is fun to watch what is essentially something burning to a cinder. It’s somewhat relaxing…
