The spectacular perseid meteor shower reached its peak on the 12th & 13th August when up to 80 meteors an hour could be spotted.
A local photographer captured the stunning display in the skies over Liverpool.
Phil Crane filmed a time-lapse from Crosby beach, showing meteors burning up in the earths atmosphere, which created amazing streaks of light across the sky.
The Perseids are bits and pieces of cosmic dust and debris left in the orbital path of Comet Swift-Tuttle.
Meteor showers happen when bits of ice and dust, which can be as small as a grain of sand or as big as a pea collide with the earths atmosphere at 134,000mph.
