    Just to let anyone who doesn't already know that the Geminid meteor shower occurs this week, can see them any time after the 7th, but the peak is just after midnight on Friday morning.

    Looking good seen as most of the country is clear early this week!

    I took a quick look at the sky earlier and saw the best meteor ive ever seen. It was a bright blue colour and lasted for about a second. Looking forward to the peak on Friday.

    Was out looking last night, spent only about 15 mins look tops and saw 2 decent meteors :lol:

    It's cloudy tonight, and looks possible like the west might remain that way over the next few days :rolleyes:

    Apparently Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night are all worth looking, but shortly after midnight on Friday morning is the peak with estimated max ZHR of 120!!!

    I'd agree with last night because driving home from Gloucester I saw 3 bright ones in 20 minutes which were obvious to my naked eye as I drove, let alone if I'd been stopped looking concentratedly!

    Spent an hour outside last night and saw 35 meteors one of which was bright blue and lasted for about 2 seconds, it more than made up for the Perseid disapointment.

    No-one would come out to look for the meteors with me, so ended up looking out of the window, saw about 10 in suburban light, one of which left a brilliant trail!

    I'm pretty satisfied with this, seem as all the others were so disappointing!
