"Astronomers Catch a Shooting Star for the First Time"

Yahoo News and the Associated Press's article: Astronomers catch a shooting star for the 1st time is an interesting read. Amazing that they were able to find fragments of a small asteroid that burned its way through our atmosphere, but even more important, they learned some things that would be useful if we ever have a larger chunk of asteroid in a collision course with our planet. I am always amazed at the pieces of new information that dedicated scientists share with us.
