Adrian Brown sent in this incredible photo from the coast of the Isle of Wight, England. Those "shooting stars" you see are meteors, which streaked across the sky during the Eta Aquarids meteor shower last week. The stone structure in the foreground is a medieval lighthouse, constructed in 1314, which the photographer says locals call the "Pepperpot." Thanks, Adrian, for sending in this great image! Have a cool photo of a meteor shower? Send it to spacephotos at space dot com. For more images like this one, visit us here: http://buff.ly/1skMee4
