John Chumack of Dayton, Ohio, is a tireless astroimager, and he is very good at sending his work to us at the magazine. His latest venture was to photograph the Geminid meteor shower, which peaked last week, and he created a “movie” from the many still photos made through three nights with his automated meteor camera.
The result is pretty neat. You’ll see more than 400 Geminids in a span of three nights, December 11 through 14, 2012, as recorded from John’s backyard, in a span of 96 seconds. I dare you to count them!
