The Geminid Meteor Shower: From Phaethon to Earth

Here is the Geminid meteor shower of December 2014 from a slightly different perspective! Shane Gehlert of Blue Dog Films filmed some time lapse images over two nights in December 2014. Intrigued by the Geminid meteor shower, he decided to make a short film with additional animation to explain (very simply) how it comes about from its origin on Phaethon to its impact with Earth.
