It’s a couple days before the peak of the Geminids, one of my favorite meteorite showers I watch each year. Fortunately and unfortunately the supermoon is full and setting right after dawn each morning, so the sky and ground is filled with lunar light! I saw a couple of shooters but they were not as brilliant as usual due to the lunar light.
As I watched the sky, I realized the amount of nighttime light was probably how most folks in the suburbs see the sky on a good night! I’m reminded how spoiled I am to live where I do on the Palmer Divide at nearly 7000 feet above sea level, in the forest far away from the city!
