Just been outside for the past 50minutes…watching the annual Geminids meteor shower. On a cold clear winters night with the crisp backdrop of the milkway…absolutely breath taking!

Luckily enough I was on the Isle of Arran, well away from any light pollution. So my view was perfect, at the peak there was perhaps 2 or 3 a minute but mostly had to wait patiently to watch the chunk of rock slam into the atomosphere at a great rate of knots!
