PHOTOS: Geminid Meteor Shower Illuminates Night Skies Across the Globe

One of the most notable meteor showers of the year sent flashes of light across the sky early this week, creating stunning scenes around the world.

In an event that produced up to 150 meteors every hour, stargazers were able to see meteors where clouds didn't block views.

For much of the U.S., clouds obstructed the sky on both Sunday and Monday night, the peak of the shower.

From Norway to Texas, onlookers around the world were able to take in the sights.
