Considered the best meteor shower of the year, the Geminids will peak on the night of Dec 13/14. At a rate of 120 meteors per hour, gravel sized fragments will produce bright, long and slow streaks in the sky. This is a must see event.

I guess that means the Flat Planet society is around the corner to deal with the rest of the solar system. Uh-boy. There is only a one way hopeless conversation with Flat Earthers.

All commercial aircraft travel a lot higher than one mile. This would be a much safer and cheaper.

I thought scientists would wait for the Friday April 13, 2029 passage to see if it threads the “keyhole” or not.
