PERSEID METEOR SHOOTS ACROSS THE SKY OVER MOUNT CHARLESTON IN NEVADA.
The glowing trail of a Perseid meteor streaks across the sky over Mount
Charleston, about 35 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada in this
five-minute camera exposure in the early morning hours of August 13,
2002. The meteor shower is a result of the earth's orbit passing
through debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle. The streaking light show is
caused by small pieces of the comet burning up as they hit the
atmosphere at a speed of 132,000 mph. The meteor shower is visible
every August and gets its name from the fact that they appear to
radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus. REUTERS/Ethan
