First Shooting Star Seen from Mars

Our weekly Friday diversion takes us yet again to the Red Planet, where NASA's feisty Spirit rover snapped a picture of a streaking meteor that was part of a Martian meteor shower.

The image was shot back in March, but astronomers were not sure exactly what it was. Now they have a pretty firm idea that it was a piece of a comet.

I wonder what the NASA scientists wished for?
