This long exposure picture taken 13 August 2007 shows the stars' path indicated by the earth's rotation some 45 kms northwest from Nicosia. Hundreds of Cypriots gathered at Xyliatos dam outside Nicosia at midnight today to witness the meteor shower known as the Perseids - named so because it appears to radiate from the constellation Perseus. The meteor shower is expected to peak later this week. AFP PHOTO/ALEX MITA (Photo credit should read ALEX MITA/AFP/Getty Images)
