During the peak hours of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower a bright meteor streaks the sky above ruins of an old monument near the city of Abadeh in Fars Province of Iran. The Double Star Cluster is visible on the right side as a pair of close diffuse stars. The radiant of the Perseid Meteor shower is close to the clusters. Oshin Zakarian/
