In Case You Missed the Perseid Meteor Shower Last Night, Check Out this Time Lapse

The annual Perseid Meteor Shower took place last night and since then, many photographers have uploaded their photos and videos.

This shower happens every year around the month of August, which is why it is one of the most popular meteor showers throughout the year. It’s an annual favorite for many.

Amazingly, wherever you are in the world the display can probably be seen on a clear night.

This year’s Perseid meteor shower was particularly memorable as it was enhanced by the waning crescent moon which comes up right before sunrise. Dark skies were guaranteed, so a stellar star show resulted.

In case you missed the meteor shower, here’s a quick time-lapse video of the stars shooting through the night sky into the morning.

Check out the photos below.
