Final meteor watch of 2011: Geminid shower on December 13 and 14

The radiant point for the annual Geminid meteor shower is near the bright stars Castor and Pollux, known as the Gemini Twins.

The final major meteor shower of every year (unless one surprises us!) is always the December Geminid shower.  It is a beloved shower, because, as a general rule, it’s either the August Perseids or the December Geminids that give us the most prolific display of the year.
