I'm sitting in a lawn recliner staring towards the NE sky. The Geminid meteor shower is going pretty good tonight. The sky is cloud-free, the moon set about an hour ago and we have had four really big bright green meteors and quite a few smaller ones since midnight, just over an hour ago. The peak of the shower is supposed to take place between midnight and sunrise on Tuesday. Well, they are putting on a pretty good show tonight too. Another bright slow mover steaked down, sizzling and leaving a glowing trail as I write this on my iPhone.
A big bright one got my attention out the bedroom window at around midnight, so I poured myself a wineglass of mead and settled into a recliner out here on the lanai. It's a beautiful night. 70 degrees and a breathtaking sky full of stars.
