    I see no Geminids. According to BBC this timelapse shows Geminid meteor shower in full splendour!


    There looked to be a few potential candidates, but most bright things were not meteors

    They showed a few supposed Geminids on the BBC 10 O’clock News last night (or perhaps the weather) and one of them looked more like a satellite trail.

    Pity as they did such a good job the night before showing Grant Privett’s pic of a Gem over Stonehenge:

    Gary Poyner

    At the end of the piece which contains Grant’s excellent image, there is a photo of a chap looking through a fully automated scope, in silhoutte against a background of the Summer sky, and the heading “You should be able to see the meteors with a naked eye – if the weather is good”.

    Good ‘ole Beeb.

    Those looked liked planes at night! I also saw a (pretty/standard) star trail photo described as the meteor shower.
