    All this week you may be able to see the Geminid Meteor shower which will peak on Saturday night. If you have clear skies these are really worth a look...

    Wherever there isn't a cloud I guess, so nowhere around here, then!
    Hoping for better in the next few days...

    They are named after the point in the sky where they appear to come from but in reality you can see them directly overhead or off to the side. The problem for me is they don't peak until the wee small hours - long past my bedtime!
