Space Weather Radio: News and information about sunspots, solar flares and meteor showers

Thanks to Joanne, K9JKM for pointing out that Space Weather Radio is piping audio of Ursid Meteors crossing the radar fence which guards our country from the Ruskies. If you tune in, occasionally you'll hear a rapid descending tone, caused by the radar bouncing off the ionized trails of meteors. Pretty cool.
