Caption: Perseids meteor shower. Time-lapse footage of the night sky in August with several streaks of light created as meteors impact the atmosphere. These are visible despite the Full Moon (out of the field of view) and urban light pollution. Meteor showers occur regularly each year when the Earth crosses the orbit of cometary debris. The Perseid shower is associated with the Swift-Tuttle comet, reaching its peak around 12 August each year. Filmed on 13 August 2014 over Fort Collins, Colorado, USA.
