They say the Geminids Meteor Showers may be the most massive of them all, with the peak around 9pm onward, Wednesday Dec 13, 2017. There could be 80-120 meteors an hour. Look up to the left of Orion to find the area, in the East and SE as the night goes on. These meteors may have originated from the 'rock comet', 3200 Phaethon, an 'asteroid' about 3 miles wide, and it will make it's closest approach to Earth (about '6 million miles') on Saturday Dec 16th, around 6pm eastern time. Good viewing to you! 3200 Phaethon info: http://www.skyandtelescope.com/observ... 2017 Geminids Meteor Showers: http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essenti... ~Jayling (Ohio is in the Eastern Time Zone) -Nikon P900 with 83x optical zoom & 166x dynamic fine digital zoom super telephoto Nikkor lens: -Homemade Solar Filter using Thousand Oaks Optical Solar Filter Film (inexpensive from Amazon), some cardboard and tape.
