The wonder of the universe gave a rousing performance this past weekend. Those lucky enough and persistent enough were able to capture stunning photos of the Orionid meteor shower’s dramatic night time display.

If you missed it the next major meteor shower to light up the night sky will be the annual Leonid meteor shower in mid-November. It will peak on Nov. 17.
