About this image

My two meteor cameras picked up an incredible number of Geminid meteors last night. 99 meteors in total, which is by far the most they've ever recorded in a single night (and so close to a century!) https://tinyurl.com/yxukcwyp

In among the haul was this pair of Geminids, recorded two seconds apart in a single video clip. I got two-station detections of both: https://pigazing.dcford.org.uk/moving_obj.php?id=20201213_015637_160521caedf9fc24
