Your views of stars and space
Geminid meteor shower in the UK
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
At it;s peak there are around 120 meteors per hour and these vary in strength with the odd very strong meteor passing through and many weaker ones to watch and to keep stargazers entertained.
As the meteors are best viewed when facing north I knew the perfect place to go. The images I have captured are of the Geminid meteors as they passed over the windmill in a village called Brill here in Buckinghamshire, UK. The windmill here is one of the oldest post mills in England and dates back to the 17th century and has been lovingly fully restored.
