Weather Headlines

The Canary Island Long-Baseline Observatory on Tenerife this week captured the peak of the Perseid meteor shower.

The European Space Agency’s Meteor Research Group, which operates the night vision video camera, recorded the streaks of light.

The meteors are debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle.

The Perseids peak in mid-August and are considered one of the best meteor showers of the year.
