The Geminid in December is one of the meteor showers that put one a show every year. Last December, my father and I took some beach chairs and headed to an open field to gaze for a while at the sky and count how many meteors we would see. Unfortunately, there was just too much light everywhere, specially because it was December and a lot of houses had holiday decorations. But anyway, I was able to count 7 meteors on a 50-minute period we spent there and it is fun when you watch one of them, even though they appear to last less than 1 second. The image above does not show any meteor. I actually concentrated more on actually seeing them then on photographing them. It was a quiet and relaxing clear sky above us that left a lot of room for contemplation and conversation with my father. But eventually we left, because it was just getting too cold. When we got home, we had a well deserved hot chocolate.
