Annual Geminid Meteor Shower tonight

Geminid meteor shower: Stargazers are in for a treat tonight as the annual Geminid meteor shower is set to peak in the early hours of December 14, 2010. According to The AP, astronomers predict that it will be the best meteor shower of the year, with over 100 blazing meteors streaking through the sky each hour.

While the entire shower should be somewhat visible between December 12 and December 16, the best time to watch is between midnight tonight and sunset tomorrow morning, with ideal visibility in the Northern Hemisphere.

The meteors will appear to fall from the Gemini constellation, thus the reason for its name, so face northeast to witness the spectacle.

According to National Geographic, Geminid is the only annual meteor shower though to come from an asteroid-like object, known as 3200 Phaethon, a three-mile-wide space rock discovered by a NASA satellite in 1983.

Resolutions 2011: Store rainwater and conserve

Storing rainwater is a great way to conserve water for use in your garden.  Tap water has additives (chlorine and fluoride) that plants don’t need or want. Rainwater is also slightly acidic and helps plants access soil nutrients. You can use a rain barrel to collect rain and also reduce storm water run-off which can stress storm systems. Read about the ideas for storing and saving water and the benefits for you and the environment.

Rain barrels are great way to store water for your gardening needs

 

It is simple to collect rainwater using a rain barrel. These large barrels with a spigot collect the rain water that comes from a roof’s gutter or downspout. If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow you can collect a large amount of water every winter by collecting snow in these barrels and waiting for the spring thaw . So if you are shoveling snow, be sure to shovel some into your rain barrel.
