The Geminids is an outlier when it comes to meteor showers. Every meteor shower but this one is attached to a comet. The Geminids began on an asteroid.
That makes little sense. Asteroids don’t normally emit dust as comets do. What’s burning up? Scientists still aren’t sure.
The Geminids is a broader shower than most. It peaks December 13/14, with a lesser show a few days before and after.
I saw a Geminid meteor around a half hour ago. It was high up in the sky. I was on the patio where the view is partially obstructed. I just happened to be looking up.
It didn’t take long to run and grab “Clicky” for a more methodical check. It’s up on the tripod shooting 300 4-second exposures.
The most likely outcome is zilch. I still like to take the chance.
If I get anything I’ll let you know.
Addendum – Nothing! But this timelapse of the night sky is pretty. This is one of those things you really should watch fullscreen.
