Perseid meteor shower 2022 thrills stargazers despite bright moon


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

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