    In big cities, we don't often see the stars due to illumination or heavy clouds. But, there are still places on earth, where people can enjoy beautiful starry skies and can even spot the occasional meteor.

    In this footage uploaded to the Internet by the Royal Adelaide Hospital of Australia, two men appear to be doing a pre-flight check on a helicopter parked on the helipad in front of the hospital. Suddenly, the horizon lights up, as a meteor flies by. It vanishes just as quickly as it appeared, but will leave a lasting impression on everyone lucky enough to have witnessed this breathtaking moment.

      Wind Majestically Blows Over Raccoon

      One of the most iconic travel images of the modern age is that of a dog hanging its face out of the open window of a car. Moreover, the speed of the vehicle is not important: during traffic jams, our four-legged friends study the surrounding cars with interest, and on the highway they seem to catch the wind with their mouths.
