ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

on the night of GEMENIDS meteor shower

at Sariska Tiger Reserve, RAJASTHAN

 

Why is GEMENIDS of 2015 special?

For last 2 years gemenids meteor shower was happening on moonlit night which was ruining the whole view of the shower. All the fainter meteors were not visible due to the bright moon light. This year the moon is only 4.6% illuminated and is setting early in the evening giving us a wonderful opportunity to observe the meteors the whole night without any disturbance.
