I wrote about a meteor camera network that NASA uses to track fireballs through the heavens. Those cameras will see lots of meteors on the night of the Perseid showers. It was a quick story, and what I liked was I got to interview people from North Carolina. I was looking at the map of the camera networks, and I noticed a dot placed in my own state. I found out that dot is hosted by PARI, or Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute. I got to call them and talk to them, and I was really happy that North Carolina could be part of my WIRED adventure.
