This year’s peak of the Geminid meteor shower was unfavourable because of nearly full Moon, that reduced the number of visible meteors. On the day of the maximum activity, between Moonset and dawn, there was a brief window of good visibility. During two hours of observing meteors, I caught about 25 of them on camera. Here is a selection of the brightest.
Geminids appear every year in mid-December, peaking around December 14th, when Earth passes through a stream of debris from comet 3200 Phaethon. Typically more than 100 meteors per hour stream out of the radiant in the constellation Gemini.
