I was watching the constellations of Orion, Lepus, Taurus and Eridanus  for the Geminid Meteor Shower . I caught my first Geminid meteor (bright as Sirius) near the Zaurak of the constellation of Eridanus. I viewed total 20 Geminid’s during the 3 hours (00:30-3:30 AM IST) including 5 huge as fireball that was brighter than Jupiter. Most of the meteors I observed were fast moving, appearing as sharp streaks of light, lasting a 4 second or less. It was awesome.
