Meteor showers, a galactic dance and the Artemis mission to the Moon | The best images in science this week
The most eye-catching images in science from around the world.
Last weekend the whole world saw the last supermoon of 2022. The Sturgeon supermoon lit up skies across the world and featured in some amazing images.
Meanwhile, the Perseid meteor shower was somewhat overshadowed by the full Moon, but still produced some great sights.
NASA continues to prepare for Artemis, which the launch of the first mission expected the happen at the end of August 2022. The first mission will be uncrewed, but NASA hopes to be sending astronauts to the Moon by the time of Artemis III in 2025.
