Details:
The Geminids, one day before maximum, put on a spectacular show here in Hawaii. Catching these "falling stars" with a camera, however, proved to be a challenge. The meteors fell at rates of several per minute, sometimes in quick succession, sometimes simultaneously, with variable lulls and peaks. As far as brightnesses; it was a smorgasbord of fireballs to dim streaks of light.
