The meteor display, known as the Perseid shower because it appears 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. This weekend was considered the peak of the shower, which is visible every August. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
