GEMINIDES. Meteor shower

Every mid-December, the Earth passes through a region of its orbit where remains of sand and dust lie that the asteroid Phaethon - a space rock 5 kilometers in diameter - leaves in its path through the inner planets of the Solar System.

When debris comes into contact with Earth's atmosphere, it produces flashes that sweep across the night sky. They are the Geminids, one of the most active meteor showers that radiate from the constellation of Gemini in all directions.
