Perseid meteor shower 2022 thrills stargazers despite bright moon

The 2022 Perseid meteor shower peaked this weekend, and while a bright full moon may have washed out the best “meteor” display of the year, that doesn’t mean skywatchers are in complete darkness.

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