Meteor Seen From Space

Geek Shot: Perseids From Space

If you missed last weekend's Perseids meteor shower, catch a glimpse of a falling star from a vantage point very few see — the International Space Station. Astronaut Ron Garan, a current resident of the space station, tweeted this picture of a meteor falling away from him and toward Earth. Beyond the meteor, Ron captured the beautiful colors outlining our planet's atmosphere and a peek at the space station itself.

Follow Ron's Twitter account for more photos from space, as he often tweets images like the Perseids shower.
