    The leonids don’t usually penetrate that far, Jason.

    Trust me, Jason… you would not want to capture a real meteor.

    Can a baseball glove really capture a meteor?

    re: templosud

    most are burned up before they reach the ground.

    That one at chelyabinsk was big and hot enough to melt through the nearby lake’s ice when it finally came to rest, leaving a round hole.

    According to the University of Wisconsin meteorite page, ‘all but the largest meteors’ slow down to 100-200 mph (the terminal velocity of the rock) and ‘go dark’ as they pass through the atmosphere. A fast pitch is about 100 mph, so if the rock is small enough, the catcher’s mitt would work (except that a cold rock falling at 100 mph out of the night sky would be impossible to see…it would have to hit his mitt purely by chance).

    He has no hope of catching a meteor, but possibly a meteorite. (look it up)

    As intelligent as Jason is supposed to be, you would think he’s smart enough to know he can’t catch a 100+ MPH burning rock with a baseball mitt.

    It’s not that kind of shower, Jason.
