HI All,

The night of maximum here was ruined by a combination of cirrus cloud and a dust event that between them meant the limiting magnitude was about 2.5. The dust, during the day before was thick enough at times to limit ground level visibility to about 2.5km and was never better than 5km.
Even so I wandered outside on my south facing back veranda and in 10 minutes around midnight on the 14th I saw four definite Geminids. This would have been a very impressive apparition had the clouds and dust stayed away.
