Alright, this is for sharing of your observation experience. Or, if you are arranging gatherings, star-gazing expeditions or just want some company to go observing together, you can shout it out here.

It doesn't really matter whether it's 13th or 14th. Meteor showers just mean the frequency of meteors is higher, and the "peak" is just a gauge of when it's "highest", when it could be as high a day before and a day after the supposed peak. Frequency rises and falls as a gentle slope through the days, as long as you have a rough gauge of date it you definitely will be able to catch meteors.

Since NTU astro is already organising one, I'll be joining them instead, if i still have the energy left.. I have a competition on Friday!
Stargazing ... is an excuse to stay up past bedtime that never fails!

Hi folks:

Gems shortly pass midnight Dec 15. Visually they are pretty too!
Video system detection using a 6mm and Watec902H2Ultimate. I have to shifted the FOV to match early vs late hours as the radiant rise/set.
