    Geminid Meteor and Jupiter


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MikeBlack photographed the Geminid Meteor shower from Belmar, New Jersey, on December 13. He says the sky was relatively clear that night, so he was able to spot a meteor very few minutes. Being a science teacher, he explains that the meteors he saw in the sky that night were green in color and originated from Gemini constellation. 'Meteors are a wonderful reminder that the sky is a real place where things change and are moving around,' he said.
