@Astro_Ron Captures This Meteor From The ISS

This photo of a Meteor entering the Earths atmosphere was taken by astronaut Ron Garin. I met Ron or @Astro_Ron as he is known on Twitter. He came out and spoke to us at the STS-133 launch and #NASAtweetup. What a site this must of been from the orbiting outpost. One of those things that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck knowing that millions of tiny projectiles are hurling around your spacecraft. Just another reminder of how much of a hostile environment outer space really is.
