The two bright meteors flashing through this night skyscape from
August 7 are part of the
ongoing Perseid meteor shower.
In the direction indicated by both colorful streaks,
the shower's radiant in the
eponymous constellation Perseus is at the upper right.
North star Polaris, near the center of all the short,
arcing star trails is at the upper left.
But also named for its pose against the sky, the monastery built on
the daunting sandstone cliffs in the foreground is part of Meteora.
A World Heritage site,
a historic complex of lofty monasteries located near Kalabaka
in central Greece.
