Missing Geminid?

Earth has exited the debris stream of rock comet3200 Phaethon, which brings an end to the annual Geminid meteor shower. I spent several hours out under the stars on the peak night - Dec. 14th.  I counted many meteors per hour, many of them bright fireballs.  

I had two cameras set up, and took about 150+ photos of the night sky and did not get one meteor photograph!!

This is one of my shots which captured Jupiter (brightest point), Orion, and Taurus constellations, and the Pleiades star cluster.

All orders printed on Metallic paper, without border or watermark. Note - some cropping may occur in final printing. Other sizes and printing options are available. Please contact me for more information.
