    For those who dont kow about it, the Geminid meteor shower will reach its climax on the 13th and 14th December. Unfortunately the moon will get in the way a bit this year, but its still something worth staying up for.

    I went to have a look out of town to ditch the "light pollution" but still saw nothing. I think the moon is too bright so I'll wait for the moon to pass along and then I'll check again. Btw went at like 12:30 so hopefully if the moon moves along then I'll check again before sunrise.

    Was a bit disappointing. Overcast in cape town and when there was a break in the clouds, the moon was really bright. Only saw one or two meteors not liek the shower that happened last year.
