Brief Glimpse: Geminid Meteor Shower

What a nice night to watch a meteor shower here around Lawrence. Hardly needed a coat with this unseasonably warm temperatures (56?). The sky cleared up awhile before the moon rose. I brought a chair outside.

For awhile I sat out under the stars watching for Geminid meteors. I saw several including one really bright one that streaked overhead. The showers activity must be pretty high. Soon the sky started to get a bit lighter as the moon came up, the clouds increased over me. A little taste of the finest annual meteor shower. Very glad I spent some time outside watching.
