Frozen Meteor Watching

No, “frozen” doesn’t refer to next week’s Gemenid meteors. It refers to anyone spending the night outside to watch them – at least if you live in the same northern climate as I do. But if you’re willing to brave the cold, the Geminids, with their bright and long-lasting meteors, should put on quite a show. The shower will reach it’s peak December 13th and 14th. The moon could cause problems earlier in the night, but it will be setting just as prime viewing time begins. So make a thermos of your favorite hot beverage, and try to find at least a little time for watching these winter gems.
