Caption: Meteor shower in the night sky, computer artwork. Meteor tracks, also known as falling or shooting stars, are caused by tiny dust grains entering the Earth's atmosphere. The air resistance incandesces the particles making them visible as streaks of light. Meteor showers occur regularly each year when the Earth crosses the orbit of a comet and its debris enters into the atmosphere. Two comets are also seen, one at bottom centre the other at upper centre right.
