Need a quick escape from your day? Put on your headphones and watch this dizzying time-lapse video at full screen as meteors from years and years of showers flit across the sky.

Thomas O'Brien shot and edited this video, which captures the Perseid, Geminid and Leonid meteor showers, sometimes showing the path of the meteors against the long-exposure star trails. Watch it in HD if you can to see even more meteors streaking your screen.
