Spectacular meteors during a Leonid meteor shower over Joshua Tree National Park, taken over a course of multiple exposures and combined. The Leonids are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Tempel-Tuttle. They get their name from the location of their radiant (i.e., the point in the sky where the meteors seem to originate or radiate from) in the constellation Leo. The color shift is due to the meteoroid's burning in the atmosphere. --- Image by © Tony Hallas/Science Faction/Corbis
