near dawn and diminished the viewing!
Tonite we are treated to the peak of the Geminid meteor shower. In spite of the waning moon, in clear skies, one could see anywhere from 40 to 120 meteors per hour. The Geminids produce the greatest potential for stunning fireballs and were born from a rocky asteroid rather than an icy comet.
For the best viewing, get to Steamboat immediately! No, really, try to find a rural setting, void of light pollution, between 10:00pm and sunrise. But, the greatest number of meteors will occur one to two hours after midnite.
Enjoy the show, I know I will if the clouds cooperate!
