Hah, I KNEW I wasn't imagining it that time I watched a meteor shower and heard a whooshing noise with each meteor! http://buff.ly/1iFI8Vd
For centuries, people have reported hearing a sound made by a meteor as it streaked across the skies. As recently as the 1970s, these people were routinely dismissed as crackpots. But scientists think these people may have been right all along.

One day, an actual human being will submit a legitimate comment to Urban Astronomer and I'll accidentally delete it in my daily spam cleanup

Dear Internet: Where can I buy/salvage/steal broken DSLR cameras? So long as the sensor and electronics are intact, I'm interested!

RT Leah Crane: I wrote this post about the #Perseids, which I watched from a plane and it was amazing. Still relevant for #Lyrids. http://buff.ly/1nDUH3U

Introduction
This is the g+ page for Urban Astronomer, a South African based website which tries to help those of us interested in the stars to learn a little about astronomy. How to observe?  What are those things you showed me in your telescope?  What are professional astronomers learning about the universe while I enjoy the view?
