The Geminid Meteor Showers

Dear Folks,
Here is just a glance into the Geminid Meteor Shower taking place right now. My own naturalist, Fred Wooley, says this is a spectacular sight, one of the best of the year. Even though this video is short, please use the full screen. This video is from SkyWatch!
These showers are visible from late evening until early dawn. I have had lots of sightings from friends on these showers.
One of the reasons they are so beautiful this December is due to the New Moon and the spectacular brilliance of these winter skies.
There is still time to watch, go on outside late tonight or early in the morning. Take out a cup of coffee, lean back on the old truck and enjoy this world we live in.
Lou Ann
