ELDORADO CANYON, NV - AUGUST 13: A Perseid meteor (upper left) streaks across the sky over a building at the Techatticup Mine early August 13, 2010 in Eldorado Canyon, Nevada. The annual display, known as the Perseid shower because the meteors appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus in the northeastern sky, is a result of Earth's orbit passing through debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle.
