"The Geminids appear pretty active tonight (December 12/13). Here's one caught on camera close to the star Alphard in Hydra."

Dr. Tony Phillips says:
"The Geminid meteor shower is intensifying. According to the International Meteor Organization, dark-sky observers are now counting 40+ meteors per hour." (Has Audio on site.)
