It's December and Geminid meteor time, skywatchers!

Space Weather News for Dec 13, 2012

GEMINID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from "rock comet" 3200 Phaethon, source of the annual Geminid meteor shower. Around the world, observers are counting as many as 60 shooting stars per hour, a number which could increase sharply as the shower peaks on the night of Dec 13-14. Wherever you live, the best time to look is during the dark hours between local midnight and sunrise.
