Geminids – Greenwood After Dark

The biggest Meteor Shower of the Year is Tonight

The Geminids are a fairly young shower—people didn’t even begin to keep records on the meteor shower until around the American Civil War. Initially, it was a light enough shower that it barely registered for any but the most hardcore of 19th-century astronomy geeks. Since then, though, the number of meteoroids simply exploded. Today, the Geminids are almost always the largest meteor shower of the year—and 2015 will be no exception. (cnet.com)

A native of Spartanburg, S.C., he is a graduate of St. Emma Military Academy and Voorhees College. He completed several professional courses and programs at the University of Georgia, University of Miami, Washington College and the College of Charleston.
