The Geminid meteor bathe of 2022 peaked tonight (images)

One of the vital spectacular meteor showers of the yr peaked tonight and avid skywatchers everywhere in the world had been in a position to seize the spectacle, though some complained that unhealthy climate spoiled their views.

The Geminids are the second richest meteor bathe of the yr, surpassed solely by the August Perseids. A product of particles from the bizarre asteroid 3200 Phaethon, the Geminid meteor showers at their peak can produce as much as 120 taking pictures stars per hour. When the sky is evident, skywatchers can catch as much as two meteors per minute in the course of the peak, which this yr fell on the night time of Dec. 13.
