There are plenty of cliches about finding the sunshine on a rainy day, but this sidewalk art is not one of them.

Designed and produced by artist Peregrine Church, Rainworks is a special type of street art that appears on sidewalks only when they’re wet. The works include hopscotches, whimsical illustrations and uplifting messages.

SALEM, Ore. — Dozens of people reported seeing a fireball flash across Northwest skies at about 6 a.m. Wednesday, moving east to west.

Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society told the Statesman Journal it had 165 reports from sky watchers in the Northwest and Canada.

Mostly clear skies made it more visible at a time when people were heading to work or school.

Dick Pugh of Portland State University told KGW that the flash apparently was a small piece of an asteroid burning up in the atmosphere.
