Astronomers and tourists have been camping at the Valley of Whales in Fayoum, Egypt, to observe the annual Perseid meteor shower, one of the most popular astronomical phenomena. Hundreds of meteors shoot across the sky in a spectacular display that can be viewed around the globe. The Perseid meteor shower peaks every year about this time as the Earth passes debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet. Hamada Elrasam reports for VOA from Fayoum, Egypt.
