  1. those aren't images of the perseids from space, the meteor trails would not be visible. they need to hit an atmosphere to light up. those are earth based images, it's pretty basic stuff.

  2. Whoa!! Didn't you see the earth in the image? The meteors entered the earth's atmosphere and burnt up, and that spectacle was recorded from high up from space.

    When you view a meteor shower from earth, you look up. You see the meteors with the sky in the background. That image was taken while "looking down" into earth from space. You would still see the meteor but now with the earth in the backround, as visible in the image.

    You think I made up that stuff?
