Last night was the annual Perseid meteor shower, a particularly beautiful natural sight that comes to us courtesy of falling debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle. Like any other thing that happens, it was caught on Instagram. And it was a nice look, a bit of a cosmic breather from all those #brunch pics.

Find some awe-inspiring snaps below.
