    Default Geminid Meteor Shower - visible from Dublin right now!

    On my way home tonight, I glanced up at the sky and thought I was witnessing an alien invasion in progress!

    Apparently, it's the start of the annual Geminid Meteor Shower, due to peak on December 13/14.

    The meteors were clearly visible from Dublin tonight!

    Hope it's equally cloud-free on Thursday and Friday nights!

    They might still be aliens too, though.

    This was just a preliminary display.

    They're being mapped here:

    I blame James Reilly, and it also means Labour will go the way of the PDs and Greens in the next election.

    Just trying to fit it, like.

    One of them was particularly scary. It seemed to hover, then reversed direction and headed straight for Dublin City Centre!

    Turned out to be the Garda Helicopter!

    I'm hoping some of that cloud cover clears away!
