Here is a great collection of Earth Science illustrations and diagrams. The images were produced by Dr. Bruce Railsback for basic geology classes at the University of Georgia. Educators are welcome to use them in their teaching, so long as they are not reproduced in publications and are not used for financial gain. The images make nice additions to PowerPoint presentations. CLICK HERE to see what's available.

This is a great site when it comes to finding the latest news and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, sunspots, and near-Earth asteroids. CLICK HERE to check it out. The Perseid meteor shower reaches its peak on August 12-13. Observers are reporting about a dozen meteors per hour. Unfortunately a full moon will reduce visibility on peak night.
