2022 Perseid meteor shower delights astronomers despite bright moon (photos)

The 2022 Perseid meteor shower peaked over the weekend and while the bright full moon may have taken away the best of the ‘shooting star’ display this year, that doesn’t mean skywatchers were left completely in the dark.

Astronomers around the world captured dazzling views of the Perseid meteor shower as it peaked overnight Friday-Saturday (August 12-13) and they 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.
