Meteor News...Early Geminid Meteor Over Northwest Mexico...

Dec. 7, 2010 Hermosillo Mexico: Sandia allsky meteor camera operator Salvador Aguirre posts this early Geminid meteor captured by his camera in Hermosillo, Mexico. The orange-ish color enhances contrast to better show detail in the trail. The annual Geminid Meteor Shower is officially underway and promises should offer even casual observers a nice bright "shooting star" or two this month. Compare the star chart below with the composite image beneath. No question...a Geminid! Nice work, Doctor.
