Just to give a reminder that tomorrow (Friday) night, into Saturday morning will see the annual Geminids meteor shower. Given the the current cold snap and clear conditions, apparently there's a decent chance of a good show if you can be bothered to drag yourself out (and aren't too drunk).

Big, big thanks James, would have missed this without your reminder.
and thanks for link
In Europe there is a good chance that we will start seeing the Geminid's tonight as it says in the Sky & Telescope article.
Best be on the lookout tonight in case tomorrow is cloudy.
Thanks for the heads up.
Hmmm might have a go and see if I can better my one of the perseid meteors from August.
Anyone in the cotswolds fancy a night on Rodborough common where it's nice and dark?
Bugger, just went for a peak and its 100% cloud cover (1st time in days) and the forecast is for 5 more days the same.
same here, clouds all the way.. Suppose its just a case of looking on spaceweather.com to see what we missed :-(
Quote: The strongest and most reliable meteor showers are the Perseids of August and December’s Geminids. Balmy weather and summer vacations have made the Perseids well known and popular, but the Geminids are actually easier to view from mid-northern latitudes. For one thing, nights are much longer in December. And while the Perseids are best viewed before dawn (as most showers are), the Geminids offer excellent viewing starting in mid- to late evening.
According to Sky & Telescope.
I think they forgot to mention that it's much much colder in December!
Just looked and it's still clear here in West Yorkshire.
It can be a cracker Doug....
Seen some beuts with this one before in years gone past.
Lucky bloody namby pamby northerners. Down here in the tough west country we can't see bugger all of the sky.
Happen they'll punch holes in the cloud just before they crash down on Dorset. We'll see beggar all otherwise - thick cloud here too!

Derbyshires cloudy, foggy even - in places
Oh well, I guess we'll have to wait another year....
blinking cloud here - but thanks for the 'heads-up'
