Meteor News...Awesome Geminids Video From North Texas 12/13-14/10...

Posted from Kevin Palivec Hawley, Texas
This video is compiled from individual captures during the overnight peak of the Geminid Meteor Shower Dec. 13th and 14th, 2010. The camera has an approximate field of view of 40 degrees and points North toward Oklahoma City, OK from Hawley (near Abilene) Texas. Mid video, Orion appears, then sinks toward the Southwest. As the Earth's position within the stream of asteroidal debris changes, so does the apparent radiant and subsequent direction of travel of the meteors. This video is quite stunning and my thanks goes to Kevin Palivec of Hawley, Texas (c) Kevin Palivec 2010-2011. Click play and enjoy the show!
