The Perseid meteor shower may have peaked around midnight on August 12, but that doesn't mean you can't see the amazing display on Sunday night as well.
During its peak, stargazers and non-stargazers alike marked out a spot to watch the showÂ—and it didn't disappoint!
From South Africa to Illinois, people everywhere were flocking to see the night sky light up with streaking balls of light.
"Our boys were so excited to watch the shower!" The Zimmers family from Illinois told Space.com. "We saw many within 30 minutes, including 2 bright flashes!"
While it must have been amazing to see the show when it peaked on August 12, many people were unable to see it due to unfavorable weather conditions.
Don't fret, however, you can still see the show tonight, August 13, though the rate of meteors per hour will be a bit lower.
"For those who missed the shower on the night of Aug. 11-12, you can still see Perseids on the night of Aug. 12-13," NASA officials said. "The rates will be lower, approximately 40 per hour."
Even with 40 per hour, you're bound to see at least one if you go outdoors between midnight and dawn. Don't forget that the best place to see anything in the sky is where there isn't much light from street lamps or stores. So plan to watch from a spot away from all the advances of modern technology.
Did you see the Perseid meteor shower on Saturday night? Were you impressed?
