Caption

Geminid meteors. The Geminids are a meteor shower that occurs annually in December. It is caused by debris from an object named 3200 Phaethon, thought to be an extinct comet. The bright object at lower left is Jupiter. At right is the Orion arm of the Milky Way. At top centre is the Large Magellanic Cloud (a dwarf galaxy). Photographed on 13 December 2012, from San Antonio de Areco, Argentina.
