Stones falling from the sky
Every year in August, the Earth passes through the remains of comet Swift-Tuttle, creating a veritable shower of shooting stars that can be observed around midnight. Up to 100 shooting stars per hour can be expected. Horst Thiel explains these celestial bodies, reports on spectacular falls that have even fallen in the immediate vicinity and shows exhibits of large shooting stars that have made it to Earth.
