The astonishing photo showing a meteor from the Perseid shower entering the atmosphere over the Rio-Antirrio Bridge in western Greece on Monday night is going viral.

The jaw-dropping image was published on Instagram by Alexandros Maragos (@alexmaragos).

Monday was the peak of the annual Perseid meteor shower, which was visible in the skies over almost all areas of the northern hemisphere including Greece, despite the moon, which was almost full.

This particular meteor shower never fails to provide an impressive display, and those who were awake had the opportunity to observe the spectacular phenomenon, if the weather conditions allowed it in their area.
