Perseid Meteor Trail
Photograph - Photograph
Perseid meteor trail. Time exposure showing a trail of a Perseid meteor against a starry sky at dusk. The Perseids are meteors seen around 12 August each year, and which appear to originate from the direction of the constellation Perseus. These meteors are small dust particles from an orbiting dust belt known as the meteor stream. As the Earth passes through the stream, a large number of dust particles enter the atmosphere and burn up, creating a bright trail. At its peak, the Perseid shower has about one meteor per minute. This photograph was taken in British Columbia, Canada.
