Full Moon and Meteors Make Me Smile

What are you doing the next couple of nights? I'm gonna enjoy the "Long Nights Moon" (Full Moon) and this:

"GEMINID METEOR SHOWER: The annual Geminid meteor shower peaks on Dec. 13th and Dec. 14th when Earth passes through a stream of debris from extinct comet 3200 Phaethon. Bright moonlight will reduce the number of visible meteors from the usual 100/hr to only 20/hr or so. That's still a nice show. For best results, watch the sky starting 10 pm local time on Saturday night (Dec 13th) until dawn on Sunday morning (Dec. 14th)." via Space Weather

I watched an incredible meteor during the recent Venus/Jupiter conjunction--it streaked right between the two planets in the night sky. Wow!
