Dan sets up his camera.
The Geminids were in effect this week in Hawaii and North America. Monday night, the 15th, was the peak of the meteor shower and a few of us went to go check it out and try to snap some pics. We read that there were supposed to be 50 or so meteors per hour and that was about right. Every minute you’d see a meteor (which looks like a shooting star) or two. It was very cool to see but almost impossible to capture on camera.
Sam, Dan, Reanne and I cruised out to “Alan Davis,” the beach between Sandy Beach and Makapu’u around midnight. It’s one of the darkest spots you can find that’s within 20 minutes of Honolulu.
