Watch Geminid meteor shower

Message below from Jennifer Rowe, Secretary of the wonderful Astronomy Association of Jamaica - reminding us of the wonder of this vast Universe!

"Check this link:

"The best time to watch December's 2011 Geminid meteor shower is from midnight to dawn, on December 14 and 15. You should also see meteors on nights before and after that. 
"This year, however, a large waning gibbous moon 
will wash out a good number of Geminids in 2011. 
"Best direction to look? The meteors radiate from a point that's east in mid-evening – and overhead by 2 a.m. But, like all meteors in annual showers, they will appear in all parts of the sky."

Kind regards
