It is peaking on 14th. I'm now in the middle of exams, will post more about it after my exams.

I've always done one every geminids since 2004, no reason not to do it now! :D

Hi everyone,

We are organising a camp to enjoy Geminids (even thought not the peak but still within the period).

This period is monsoon season and many think is the worst weather to do on for a camp... However, it is also the best time to enjoy the winter constellations and the geminids.. So by faith, we decided to go on with this.
Date: 16th dec - 18th dec
Venue: Pulau Ubin

For those who love adventure and want to enjoy astronomy camp in a new way, this camp would be suitable for you! Rain or Shine, this camp will sure carry on... Please download the attachment to see more details.
