Perseid meteor shower 2022 delights astronomers despite bright moon

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 have captured dazzling views of the Perseid meteor shower as it peaked on Friday night to 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 took some truly stunning photos for Getty Images.
