Geminid Meteor Shower

Tonight the Geminid meteor show puts on a show that can compete with holiday lights after midnight. You can learn more about the Geminids at EarthSky. The best viewing should be after 2 AM in Austin. Some of the Geminids can be quite bright and even compete with holiday lights as this one from 2015 taken just after 10 PM.
