The annual Perseid meteor shower peaked last night, and I thought I’d pull together a few related resources.
Here are The Best Sites For Learning About Meteor Showers (and are accessible to English Language Learners):
MSNBC has a very good interactive on meteor showers.

The Christian Science Monitor has a slideshow on meteor showers.
The Los Angeles Times has a series of photos of the Perseid meteor shower.
The Discovery Channel has a number of videos about meteors and meteor showers.
Meteors In The Night Sky is a slideshow from The Wall Street Journal.

All About Meteors comes from Space.com.
Kidipede gives a simple explanation of meteors.
