We had the pleasure last night of watching the Geminid Meteor Shower while camping out on a Bigfoot expedition. It happens every year on December 13 till the peak time after midnight on the 14th with over 120 shooting stars an hour. They originate near the constellation Orion. We watched this tremendous celestial display on a crystal clear, very cold night, around the campfire with spiced rum. We could hear coyotes howling, and owls hooting. Lying in my tent with the rain flap off, I fell asleep watching one shooting star after another. I swear life don't get any better.
