image for Meteors Fell By the Bucket Loads

Mount Palomar, California (IP) - Meteors fell by the bucket load last night and delighted the astronomers on this astronomical campus as well as members of the lay public. Unfortunately the meteors fell only on the Mount Palomar campus.

Five gallon buckets filled one fourth of the way with cold water soon became full of steaming meteorites and more buckets were called for and eventually filled to the brim.

It has been reported that one clever astronomer had devised a way to attract all of the meteorites to this one location. He had installed a huge electromagnetic coil on the site where the 200 inch telescope once stood before it was sold on ebay last week.

One unfortunate side effect of this fiendish scheme was that very few meteors fell anywhere else on the planet which led to disappointment among folks eager to catch a glimpse of the stellar light show which occurs every year in August. One person was very angry and threatened to boycott the Orionid, Taurid, and Geminid meteor showers which occur around October 18 - 23, November 8 - 10, and December 10 - 12 respectively.
