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).

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.

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.

Quote: The strongest and most reliable meteor showers are the Perseids of August and Decemberís 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.

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!
