Clouds at night over a tropical beach, with a coconut tree at left. Just to upper left of the coconut tree is the light trail from a meteor, part of the Perseids meteor shower. 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. Photographed in 2018 in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
