The Perseid meteor shower, which was to peak in the early morning hours on Sunday, has generated lots of interest across Michiana.
50 to 60 shooting stars per hour were possible, and the weather cooperated for fantastic watching.
If you're lucky, you may have seen a handful of meteors dart across the cosmos, but you had to be patient.
NASA says the meteor shower was to take place Aug. 11-13, so if you missed the show last night or early Sunday morning, you may have another shot to see it late tonight or early Monday, although it probably has peaked.
Many WSBT viewers spotted the big event in the sky.
Here are some of the Facebook posts from our friends:
Tonya Busse: "It was crazy awesome! Some were pale like a flashlight treking through the sky, clusters of them in just a few seconds. Then, there were bright ones that just shot out of nowhere and across the sky. It was just like the ones you see in the movies. It seemed fake. I couldn't believe my eyes! I rubbed my eyes and shook my head several times thinking something was wrong with my eyesight. I have never witnessed anything like it!"
Heather Tetzlaff Smith: "In St. Joe County, we saw 26 meteors and two amazing fireballs! It was all so amazing to watch the crescent moon and Venus rise!"
Rachel Szalewski: "I saw 14 of them."
Amanda Hapner: "It was such a beautiful night. We spent the night watching the AMAZING sky and fishing on the St. Joseph River in Elkhart. Great show!!"
Christine Reinbolt Wilson: "It was an amazing show! My neck is stiff from looking up but well worth it!"
Andrea Belokopitsky Medard: "Awesome!"
Jeremy Lowery: "I saw quite a few driving home from work and it's just awesome to see them."
Cassie and James Johnson: "Star City is really getting a show! I can say out of my 22 years, I've never seen so many shooting stars! I spent an hour-and-a-half watching this with my family! Pretty much amazing."
Denise Felhauer: "Saw 70, and 2 of those were fireballs in 3 hours in LaPorte. What a great show."
Martha Huebert: "I saw a bright red object moving across the western sky at 5 a.m. Noiseless, so not a plane. About the same size as one of the many stars still out. No shooting stars."
Tim Warstler: "I was out from 11 p.m. till 4 a.m. .. awesome. 228 I counted and 2 flaming fireballs."
Jennifer Owens: "The sky was beautiful last night! It seemed like there were many more stars than usual! Add to it the surprise of seeing one of them shoot across the sky and it made for a great night!"
Phillip Heidrich: "I live in Tennessee now, and we had a show here thanks to everyone in South Bend telling us about it. My girlfriend has never seen one before until last night. Thanks again for the heads-up WSBT. Keep up the good work."
M. Sue Clark: "We saw 12 last night, and then I got up at 5:00 this morning and saw another 7......way cool!"
