When en asteroid/meteoroid enters Earth’s atmosphere, it becomes a meteor (also known as a shooting star, those lovely things that we all like to wish on). Friction from Earth’s atmosphere causes most meteors to burn up, protecting the life below and producing a cool show in the process. In this video, you get 7 years of time-lapses that were takes of meteors as they blazed across our night sky. All of the footage was shot and edited by Thomas O'Brien. In this stunning 2 minute video, O'Brien includes footage of the Perseid, Geminid, and Leonid meteor showers.
