Geminid Meteors

Whoo whoo, we went out last night at 10:30 pm to have a look at the comet, and saw lots of bright meteors.

We went to the Andrea 2 dive site to get away from the lights around our house. The comet was pretty easy to spot with the naked eye, but didn't seem to have a tail, even in binoculars.

The meteors were fantastic; pretty frequent, with many slow bright ones. If all meteor showers were this good, I'd surely go out and view them more often. This shower peaked last night, so we were out at the optimum time.
