Typhoon Yagi devastated the metro with unyielding rain and flood last weekend, so looking up at the night sky to witness one of the most spectacular meteor showers known to man was probably the least of your priorities. Not that you could've seen it through the dark clouds.

The Perseid meteor shower starts at the end of July and lasts till the end of August, but it reached its peak between August 11 to 13. During this time, skywatchers can count up to a hundred meteors per hour.

Thankfully, not everyone missed the Perseids at their peak last weekend. Elsewhere in the world, clearer night skies yielded these amazing photos.
