Geminid Meteor Shower Peaks Tuesday Morning

I’ve always loved the stars and especially the occasional meteor shower, Tuesday morning I was up late studying for two exams and was able to sight about five meteors near the constellation of Orion.  This was around the 3 am, a few hours after the moon descended behind the horizon which was great because then visibility was much clearer.  However, the temperature was unbearably cold!

If you are interested in other celestial events, check this site out for dates coming soon. The next meteor shower is January 4th, the Quadrantids!
