The answers you seek are unveiled at Flagstaff's Lowell Observatory with its exhibit "Great Balls of Fire: Comets, Meteors, and Asteroids," which runs through Monday, September 2. You can escape the heat and learn of recent discoveries, cutting-edge planetary science, chance, and risk of these identified flying objects. Included are interactive computer programs and a hands-on "pod" exhibit to role play as explorers-in-training to encourage curiosity and knowledge in the field.

Goodness gracious, get to 1400 West Mars Hill Road in Flagstaff. Admission is $5 to $12. Kids younger than 5 and members get in free. The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Get details by calling 928-233-3212 or visiting -- Craig Smith
