Just for pleasure, the Astronomy Picture of the Day this August 25, 2015:
A meteorites rain of the Perseids (*), and the Milky Way captured above Mt Rainier, an active volcano of the Cascade Range in the United States. This image was created from a 2:00 video which recorded the fall of a dozen of meteorites, including one particularly bright during their decay in the atmosphere.
(*) The Perseids or "Tears of St. Lawrence "are a swarm of meteors (or shooting stars) visible upon entry into Earth's atmosphere; this meteorites are made of debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle, whose size ranges from that of a grain of sand and that of a small pea. Although the first traces observation date from the year 36, it was only between 1864 and 1866 it established a relationship between the meteorites and the comet whose meteorites rain comes. They are observable between July 20 and August 25.
