- Dec 14, 2013Normally, one of the best showers of the year, this time it was seriously affected by the bright gibbous moon up most of the night. However, Friday night/Sat morning there was about an hour dark window after moonset and before morning twilight. It was nice and clear in Ocean View, and I counted 30 Geminids in one hour of observing. They were mostly of moderate brightness though, just one meteor really stood out at -2 magnitude. Wondering if anyone else had some good reports to share?
