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.
Yesterday the sky was covered with thin layer of cloud, just the right conditions for the occurrence of some atmospheric phenomenon. While skiing on a local hill I was able to observe a prominent sundog and a faint halo above it. Pictures were taken by a mobile phone and therefore are of poor quality.
