Don’t Miss the Geminids

Tonight the Geminid meteor shower peaks. My wife and I were out last night and saw loads, about one big fat shooting star a minute. Don’t miss the year’s best meteor shower! It’s because the Earth passes through the sandy exhaust trail of a comet. Tomorrow night will be good as well.

    I also went out last night and saw some! It is my first time to see those and I was so amazed! I hope I can see a whole lot tonight.

    That would be great – let’s just hope it stops snowing and clears up…

    The Geminids are a great meteor storm to end the year…amazing seeing so many different colours, too!
