Perseid Meteor Shower 2016 over Greece (short timelapse)

Short timelapse of a meteor burning up and leaving a vapor trail in the atmosphere over Panachaiko mountain in Patras, Greece during the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower on August 12, 2016. Music is Hammock - "We Could Die Chasing This Feeling" available on Stotify and iTunes.

The annual display, known as the Perseid Meteor Shower because the meteors appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus in the northeastern sky, is a result of Earth's orbit passing through debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle.
