What a breathtaking picture.

                           

       Meteors streak across the sky over a Roman theatre in the ruins of Acinipio, during the Perseid meteor shower near Ronda, southern Spain, in the early morning of August 13, 2015. The annual Perseid meteor shower reaches its peak on August 12 and 13 in Europe, according to NASA. Acinipo, known as "Ronda la Vieja" (Old Ronda), is an archaeological site located in a plateau at 999 meters above sea level, declared Heritage of Cultural Interest Site, which includes a Roman theatre and important Prehistoric remains. The facade of the theatre was illuminated by a torch. (REUTERS/Jon Nazca)
