A bright meteor streaks the sky of Bakony Mountains in this fisheye view captured during the peak of annual Perseid Meteor Shower in August. Constellation Perseus, the shower's radiant, is near the middle. Bright star Capella in Auriga appears through the tree branches and Pleiades star cluster is on the right. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see another Perseid meteor in the morning twilight. Tamas Ladanyi,
