SALTBURN, UNITED KINGDOM - AUGUST 12: The International Space Station passes over homes on August 12, 2013 in Saltburn, United Kingdom. The ISS passed over on the same evening as the Perseid Meteor shower was at its peak and was visible. During the peak of the meteor shower, the rate of meteors can reach 60 or more per hour. They can be seen all across the sky as they gradually fall away from the tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet. (Photo by Ian Forsyth/Getty Images)
