Geminids

Are quite good tonight, partially cloudy, but counted 30 odd in past  hour. Usually better after midnight when the UK is going "forwards", but moon rise will brighten the sky and lessen the effect.

Re: Geminids

Clearest skies for a long time here; spoiled somewhat by the neighbours' security lights ruining any attempt to let vision adapt to the dark. But still saw half a dozen or so over 15 minutes. With Jupiter rising thought about getting the telescope out, but it was a bit nippy  Undecided
