Annual Leonid Meteor Shower
November 17 and 18
ENN

From NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Media Relations Department:

"Although a typical meteor is smaller than a grain of sand, it travels 12 miles (20 kilometers) per second. Leonids are the fastest of all meteors traveling at about 44 miles (71 kilometers) per second."

"At that speed, a Leonids meteor could travel from New York to Los Angeles in about one minute."

Light disappearing into a black hole

Previously undiscovered galaxies and super massive black holes have been found through studies utilizing the Chandra X-Ray Observatory.  Findings indicate the possibility of 100 million galaxies, and these could be the source of the mysterious universal X-ray glow.
