This Is What A Meteor Shower Sounds Like

The Perseid Meteors which have been observed for about 2000 years, happen every year between mid July and mid August and now thanks to space radar technology, you can now hear what they sound like. This recording was just taken over the last few weeks and it sounds like what you might have expected.

The U.S. Air Force Space Surveillance Radar in Texas recorded echoes of the Perseid Meteors as they passed over the monitoring facility. Includes imagery of a meteor photographed by astronaut Ron Garan aboard the International Space Station.
