Canada's Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) is picking up echoes from the constellation Gemini. It's a sign that the annual Geminid meteor shower is underway. Forecasters expect peak rates to occur on Dec. 13-14, when dark-sky observers in both hemispheres could see as many as 120 meteors per hour. Observing conditions will be nearly ideal because the shower peaks just a few days after the New Moon.
 
Stoke City dismantled Manchester City beating them 2 – 0 but it could so easily have been 5 – 0. West Ham this Saturday, I’ll be at West Ham.
