Perseid radiant. The radiant is the area where the meteors in a shower seem to originate. People in the northern hemisphere get the best view of the Perseids because in the southern hemisphere the radiant is below the horizon. Southern hemisphere observers can still see a worthwhile number of meteors coming up from the horizon. Mona Evans, "Meteor Shower - the Perseids" www.bellaonline.c...

Shooting Stars & Meteor Showers in the MV sky last night http://www.nomad-chic.com/light-show-places-to-see-the-midnight-sun-and-the-aurora-borealis-finnish-lapland.html space black white shooting stars meteors
Shooting Stars-I know this is not a moon, but the moon & stars kind of go together, don't you think? Plus, it's soooo beautiful, I had to share it!
Shooting stars -- depends on whose looking, when in TRUTH, this is a meteor shower which took place back in August, 2006 and I was fortunate to see it from my front door in the darkness and clearness of the night skies;it was non-STOP from sunset to dawn the next morning and that is because the sun was blocking the view of the shower that was still on-going.
This is a beautiful sight! #shootingstars #makeawish #starlightstarbright

Solar eclipse from the moon ~ As seen from the Earth, a solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. A separate category is that of the Sun being occluded by a body other than the Earth's moon, as can be observed at points in space away from the Earth's surface. Two examples are when the crew of Apollo 12 observed the Earth eclipse the Sun in 1969 and when the Cassini probe observed Saturn eclipsing the Sun in 2006.

I've seen some say this photo is of a meteor. No, this is a 3-minute exposure of an Atlas V rocket launched morning of 2 Sept 2012 from Cape Canaveral with a payload of NASA's twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes. Rocket launches curve because they are going into orbit (angled). A meteor would be coming straight from space, not curved, normally burn up or burst before hitting ground. If this hit the ground, burning all the way, what a spectacular explosion we should see. Plus notice the floodlights.

Space Shuttle Night Launch. Explanation: This graceful arc traces an Atlas V rocket climbing through Thursday's early morning skies overCape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, USA. Snug inside the rocket's Centaur upper stage were NASA's twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP) , now in separate orbits within planet Earth's Van Allen radiation belts. Reflected in the Turn Basin from a vantage point about 3 miles from Space Launch Complex 41, the scene was captured in a composite of two exposures. One highlights the dramatic play of launch pad lighting, clouds, and sky. A subsequent 3 minute long exposure records the rocket's fiery trail. While most spacecraft try to avoid the radiation belts , named for their discoverer James Van Allen, RBSP's mission will be to explore their dynamic and harsh conditions.
