Geminid Meteor Shower

Tonight, 13th December is the peak of the annual Geminid meteor shower the best time to see them is in the early hours ( 2am onwards ) of the 14th. The radiant is very near to the star Castor in the constellation of Gemini hence the name Geminid. Expect to see between 50 and 100 shooting stars an hour that is if the clouds and rain will allow, it does not look good at all for where I live.
