Image 1 of 10


A meteor lights up the night sky over the Mexican volcano Popocatepetl near the village San Nicolas de los Ranchos in the early hours of December 14, 2004. The shower, named Geminid because it appears to originate from the constellation Gemini, lit up the sky with dozens of shooting stars per hour.
