Here's an awe-inspiring video by photographer Thomas O'Brien, who captured seven years of Perseid, Geminid and Leonid meteor showers, compressing them down into a two-minute display of nocturnal wonder.  Watching these star trails and cascading cosmic fragments swirl in space is a simple yet astounding reminder of the beauty to behold right over our heads.

Sit back and linger over this luminous lullaby in the sky ...
