Around 4:30 it's suddenly become clear in Wilderen(Belgium) and different Geminids were recorded by Cams and even two fireballs on the all-sky.
The first one on the all-sky at 04:48 UT and the second one at 05:10 UT. All together 44 meteors were captured by Cams between 4:33 UT and 6:28 UT. Sometimes, there were two at a time.
