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!
