Supermoon and Geminid Meteor Shower Compete For Attention
Double delight this week as a meteor shower and supermoon brighten the night sky.
The spectacular Geminid shower makes its annual appearance above us and reaches its peak this week.

The best view of the shower happens aound 2am each night until Thursday.

Wednesday will see the peak of the Supermoon, which while not as big as last month's Supermoon, is still 14% bigger than normal.

But..... thick cloud deprived many of a clear view of the supermoon of November, the largest of its kind since 1948.

Also there is no guarantee of clear skies tomorrow night, when the meteor shower and supermoon are at their peak.

Light cloud is forecast across Somerset throughout Tuesday and into the early hours of Wednesday morning,

Plus the two celestial phenomena will compete and possibly interfere with each other's viewing.....
