Perseid meteor shower 2022 excites stargazers despite bright moon

The 2022 Perseid meteor shower peaked this weekend, and while the bright full moon may have washed out the best of the “shooting stars” this year, that doesn’t mean skywatchers were left in the dark.

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