Special 1:
This Geminids’ radiant point nearly coincides with the bright star Castor in Gemini. That’s a chance alignment, of course, as Castor lies about 52 light-years away while these meteors burn up in the upper atmosphere, some 60 miles (100 km) above Earth’s surface.
Special 2:
Be sure to give yourself at least an hour of observing time. It takes about 20 minutes for your eyes to adapt to the dark. Be aware that meteors often come in spurts, interspersed with lulls.
More Info :
When you are meteor-watching, it’s good to bring along a buddy. Then two of you can watch in different directions. When someone sees one, call out “meteor!” This technique will let you see more meteors than one person watching alone will see.
