Astronomers observe the Gemenids meteor shower in the observatory of Avren

Gemenids Meteor Shower - Astronomers observe the Gemenids meteor shower in the observatory of Avren, near Bulgarian capital Sofia, between Dec. 13 and 14, 2014. The Geminids are a meteor shower caused by the object Phaeton 30120, which is thought to be a Palladain Asteroid with a "rock comet" orbit. This would make the Geminids, together with the Quadrantids, the only major meteor showers not originating from a comet. The meteors from this shower are slow moving and can be seen in December. They usually peak around December 13-14, with the morning of December 14th having the highest intensity. - Avren, Bulgaria - Saturday 13th December 2014 (9 Pictures)
