GEMINID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from
"rock comet" 3200 Phaethon, source of the annual Geminid meteor shower.
Around the world, observers are counting as many as 60 shooting stars
per hour, a number which could increase sharply as the shower peaks on
the night of Dec. 13-14. Wherever you live, the best time to look is
during the dark hours between local midnight and sunrise. Visit http://spaceweather.com for sky maps, photos, and updates.
