meteor showers are amazing. i've seen a few.
last nights' potential shower by a comet was a big dud.
so, why 'wait' for meteor showers?
how about launching missions to capture and redirect a
small meteor towards earth, timed specifically to hit a
certain part of the sky--as directed---by
before the meteor , a few meters across, enters earths
atmosphere, it can be blown to bits with a pre-drilled
explosive. in order to give a better show with lots of little
this also has the effect of ensuring the entire meteor burns
up in the atmosphere without any potential for problems.
i mean, it would look amazing and truly be the most
spectacular fireworks of all time.
$300 teeny satellite

||Pretty cheap really, either find a way to sneak a bomb on to the International Space Station, or go lay out some of your cash on a couple of sprite satellites ($300 a go each) preferably in magnesium for visibility.
||It doesn't have to be astronomical...
