    Perseids Meteor on Mount Rainier

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     siddsaha shot still images at 15-second intervals from his vantage point at Mount Ranier National Park. The shots create the illusion that the meteors are striking Mount Ranier.
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    A short timelapse video of stars and the Milky Way moving across the sky, climbers trying to summit Mount Rainier, and a giant Perseids meteor appearing to hit Mount Rainier with aftereffects of a swirling smoke trail.
