Time-lapse video: a bright meteor strikes the moonlit sky during the 2009 Perseid Meteor Shower, as seen from the World Heritage Site of Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. As noted by the photographer "Most of British Columbia was cloudy or rainy so I decided to drive to Alberta to watch Perseids. It was cloudy when I arrived to Banff National Park, but the sky opened up some part of the night." This video is made of a sequence of digital images, to see the single image with the bright meteor click here. Yuichi Takasaka/
