In preparation for my experiment the first thing i did was gather all
Of my materials needed for the experiment and placed
Them by the backdoor of my house, because the experiment was going

I was performing the experiment by myself, i wanted to be well

Are reflected on the star map that i complied). The 1st 2 hours into

From 1:00 am to 2:00 am activity started to pick up with the sighting of
3 "shooting stars" at 1:04 am, 1:12 am, & at 1:52 am. Between the hr. Of
2:00 am & 3:00 am, i saw 3 "shooting stars", 1 at 2:02 am, 1 at 2:36 am, &
Another at 2:53 am with somewhat of a longer visible path than
Others. By 3:00 am i noticed that the "shooting stars" had no apparent
Origin, or specific path pattern. During...
