Geminids Dec 2013Sky was patchy with clouds. Geminids surfaced shortly after midnight local time. Then a Gem fireball appear at 0:00:45:38. (UT Dec 13 15:15). A raw count from the tiny streaks include a x5 time increase of Gem count compare with the day before.
Geminids fireball franked by two dimmer Gems. To show the actual progression of the fireball I created a few time spaced snapshots. Notice the tiny short tail behind the plasma head as it progressed towards the building roof top.
|This is how the ufocapture software will create the light envelope as the fireball progress from beginning to end.|
The bonus before the above Gem fireball event was this EVEN brighter sporadic fireball.

|Geminids Dec 11 2013 - Sirius and Canopus dotted in the above summed image. Constellation of Gemini is not visible in the FOV. The ZHR rate according to IMO is 10-15 but this number jumped to 100+ in dark locations.|
The Progression of the sporadic Fireball is sequenced below.
