Check out these dazzling photos of the meteor shower from Tucson and around the world.

Excellent image by Halifax RASCal Jerry Black from last evening’s observing session at Saint Croix Observatory—3 meteors on a single 25-s frame, each meteor track traceable back to the Geminid Meteor Shower radiant point just above the stars Castor and Pollux. #RASCobserving pic.twitter.com/WrYZ4oHZ2Z— AstronomyNovaScotia (@astronomyns) December 14, 2017
