The most impressive images of the most beautiful meteor shower in 2015
People in many places around the world have witnessed the Perseid meteor shower and recorded absolutely impressive images.
In the evening of August 12th and at the dawn of 13th , people around the world had a chance to gaze at one of the most beautiful meteor showers in 2015 – The Perseid meteor shower with density reaching 60 – 100 streaks/hour.
The Perseid meteor shower originates from the comet Swift-Tuttle (or 109P/Swift-Tuttle) rotating around the sun with the cycle of 135 years, observed in 1862. When the Earth passes the comet Swift-Tuttle, having diameter of 27 km, a large cluster of meteorites from this comet are going to plunge into the Earth’s atmosphere. The meteor’s debris is going to rub against the air particles and burn up, creating streaks which we call “shooting stars”.
