Description
GOT ONE! This morning (12-13-12) at about 3:00 AM, I caught this Geminid Meteor slicing through the bowl of the Big Dipper (Ursa Major). Notice the beautiful spectrum of color as it burns up in our atmosphere! A beautiful display saw well over 100 meteors and the best show will be tonight.
