Dear meteor/Geminids observers,

Here is an interesting view of the Geminids (thanks Tioga for the forward), as we could observe them from the stratosphere! Interesting to see how a meteor behave in real time, from a different point of view. Must be much harder to associate meteors to a defined radiant from there ;-)
