The ISS photographed a meteor Perseids

Every year, August 11-12, on Earth it is possible to observe the peak of the Perseids — meteor shower, to whom we owe the comet swift — Tuttle. This year the Perseids were particularly active.

This short video was taken onboard the ISS on August 10, when the station was over Pakistan. And even though it lasts only 20 seconds, it is possible to see two meteor, which gives an idea about the power of flow this year.
