Meteorologist Rick Kearbey of Tampa Bay WTSP in Florida wrote our favorite meteor tale of the year. As Kearbey stated on Twitter, he and his daughter Kayleigh look forward to meeting a shooting star:

“‘I don’t think we can see anything,’ she said. “Let’s say a simple prayer,” I suggested to Carvey. “There was a boom. We saw the most beautiful meteorite I’ve ever seen. It was massive and bright, lighting up the sky for 15 seconds.”

Photos of showers from Japan and the Southern Hemisphere were also popular on Instagram.
