The most spectacular and annual Geminid meteor shower officially starts Thursday.

The flying object is described as ‘meteor’ but I would qualify it as ‘fireball’ since it seems enormous and completely lit up the sky!

The Geminid meteor shower is not triggered by a comet, but by a large space rock named 3200 Pheathon, flying in the Gemini’s constellation. [CNN]
