Earth has entered a stream of dusty debris from asteroid 3200 Phaethon
and, as a result, the annual Geminid meteor shower is underway. Sky
watchers around the world are reporting a slow drizzle of late-night
meteors at least as bright as the stars of the Big Dipper. The best is yet
to come: Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Friday, Dec. 14th.
No matter where you live, watch the sky between local midnight and dawn;
people outdoors before sunrise on Friday could see dozens to hundreds
of shooting stars. Depending on the details of Earth's encounter with
Phaethon's debris stream, the shower could continue into the weekend as
Damn cold front brought clouds with it so we missed the best viewing. Oh well at least we are getting some heavy rain tonight but I doubt it will be enough. The lake is to the point where you can not use any boat landings I know of and my own pond is down 4' at least.
