The 2022 Perseid meteor shower peaked this weekend, and while the bright full moon may have blotted out the best of this year’s “shooting stars,” that doesn’t mean the sky watchers have been left completely in the dark.

Stargazers around the world captured dazzling views of the Perseid meteor shower as it peaked overnight Friday and Saturday (August 12-13) and shared the photos to prove it. Some observers took to Twitter to share their meteor sightings, while other astrophotographers took some truly stunning photos for Getty Images.
