There is space news today. I don’t have pictures yet and so I will post about it when I do.
A meteor, also called a meteorite, collided with Earth in the Ural Mountains, north of Kazakhstan. Some people were injured by this and I hope they have a speedy recovery.
Today, at around 2 p.m. EST, NASA will live stream the asteroid that is going to speed by the Earth. They said it wasn’t coming too close to us. I bet in the Ural Mountains they are not so sure of this.

People go out with cameras and take pictures at night. Some are experienced photographers and some are the kind of picture taker like me. My version of picture taking is, let’s see if this comes out okay.

All the pictures are from Wikimedia Commons.
