Hello List:

This morning, on the CNN website, there is a page that
talks about "the sound of falling meteors".

They're actually echoes from reflected radio waves that bounce
off of the ionization trails of meteoroids as they pass through the
Earth's atmosphere.

You'll hear one as the page loads.
