Geminids and now Quadrantids Meteor Shower Location near Pune
Note : Quadrantids Meteor Shower will not be as powerful as December 2017 showers
Everyone speaking on watching the meteor shower, and you are wondering how do I witness the same with my kids ?
First thing is that from City you have very less chances of watching the meteor shower, this is due to the light pollution happening inside city limits .. so one have to move at least 20-25 kilometers away from city lights ..
Also remember to enjoy the Geminids Meteor Shower you won’t need any telescope, binoculars, but all you need is darkness and no pollution of city lights. that’s all …
Of course don’t forget to carry warm cloths and sleeping bag 🙂
And simply lying down will give you perfect sky view and a a great night show.
