What would a terraformed asteroid look like?

You can't terraform an asteroid in the sense that you give it a breathable atmosphere. You need much more gravity.

What about putting something like a glass ceiling over it so it is completely covered, maybe 21 lutetia or vesta? or terraforming the inside of the asteroid and spin it so it makes gravity?

A teaser image from last night. My first time capturing glowing meteor smoke. smile



Each frame is a 30s exposure, so this trail was luminous for several minutes!

Yeah, seeing the green plasma train after a bright one is really neat. Even if you miss the meteor itself, you can still often see the remaining glow if you turn quickly enough.

Nice catch! Was that smoke trail visible with the unaided eye?

Perseids are annoyingly fast. Most are only visible from the corner of the eye and there is no time to get a proper look unless it zips past right we're you're looking. Leonids and Geminids are better in that respect.
