Sounds refelected off meteors
The US Air Force Space Surveillance Radar has been shut down, but we're still recording meteor echos. How do we do it? Radio engineer Stan Nelson uses a Yagi antenna in New Mexico to detect 54 MHz TV signals reflected from meteor trails. When a meteor passes over his observatory--ping!--there is an echo. It's the next best thing to a giant government radar!
