Geminids Gem

This image is a composite of 9 separate 27-second meteor streak exposures looking east at Bowman Woods Park from about 11:10 PM, Thursday, December 13 to 12:10 AM Friday, December 14--peak time for the Geminids Meteor Shower. The shower was the most active I had seen in several years. I counted about 17 very bright meteors in the span of about an hour.
