Star-crazy Britain gets ready for the Geminids ~ 14 – 19 December 2013

The Geminids meteor showers can be seen in the skies over the UK tonight and into the beginning of next week. But the best place to see them is in the sky over the deserts of Morocco and Jordan...

 
PRLog - Dec. 14, 2012 - BASINGSTOKE, U.K. -- If Sir Patrick Moore had not sadly passed away this week, he would no doubt have been in his observatory tonight to catch a glance of the extraordinary Geminids Meteor Shower, considered by many to be the best meteor shower in the entire heavens.

The Geminids are known for producing up to 60 multi-coloured meteors per hour at their peak, which usually occurs around 14 December, although some meteors may be visible up until the 19th.

Comments amateur astronomer Mark Wright, Founder of Chameleon Worldwide, a travel company which currently has a group out in Morocco to witness the meteor shower from the desert: “The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Gemini. This year the new moon will guarantee a dark sky for what should be an awesome show.  The best viewing is usually to the east after midnight from a dark location.

“But the very best place to see the Geminids are from the desert, under the crystal clear skies of Jordan and Morocco.

“These trips are increasingly popular so if anyone is thinking about joining one of our groups in 2013, they need to contact us now.  We will also be organising some trips to Uganda, to witness the total eclipse, combining the holiday with a chance to enjoy the country’s fascinating culture and wildlife, in particular the famous Mountain Gorillas.”
