    When I was trying to take pictures of meteors in August a few years ago, I didn't get anything on my regular film...then I flipped the colors around (regular to negative) and saw the streaks. It isn't pretty, but at least I knew I caught some

    Default Geminids Dec 13/14th

    I was just reading about the Geminid Meteor Shower for this year, and according to this website, they may produce up to 100 meteors per hour. Hope for clear skies in your area.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Thanks Bob. I just bookmarked the sight. Very interesting. May have to schedule a camping trip to Cherry Springs, PA.

    Your welcome! According to Google's satellite and terrain map, the state park out there appears to be a good spot at around 2600' to watch a meteor shower. Post some photos if you decide to go and take photographs.

    Thanks for the update Patrad. We're hoping for clear skies here in the east. I'd love to see 140 per hour.

    Charlie, Thanks! Hold them back far enough so you get a good show too.
