A meteor streaks across the skies over the Sand Pyramids during the peak of the Perseid meteor shower in the village of Miljevina near Foca, August 12, 2018. Scientists promised up to 100 stars per hour.
The annual Perseid meteor shower will light up the sky on Sunday, and it's expected to be one of the biggest stargazing events of the year. The Network was published colorful pictures, which depicted the stars from different parts of the world. This year the phenomenon will last from 17 July to 24 August. The video was made aboard the worldwide space station. The meteor shower seems to originate in the constellation named Perseus (from the tip of its imagined sword) and was therefore named Perseids.
But for a layperson, a strong meteor shower is just a pretty sight. Tiny particles burn up in earth's atmosphere, resulting in and formed the "star rain".
Stargazers come out to watch the Perseid meteor shower early on Monday morning north of Castaic Lake, California August 12, 2013. The meteoroids become lovely meteors or shooting stars when they enter the earth's atmosphere and burn up due to the friction caused. This is because all of the meteors are approaching Earth from the same point, even though perspective may make them appear more skewed as they get closer.
"All of these meteor showers are the Earth passing through the debris left behind by a comet earlier", said Roy Gal, associate astronomer with the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
