Google Doodle took us on Thursday on a trip to show how Geminid's meteorological shower was traveling to Earth.
The slide show Doodle shows how 3200 Phaethon, a asteroid that may be a comet disappear, breaks while its orbit brings it close to our sun and creates a path of scam. The asteroid has named after the Greek god Apollo son.
This is a Geminid meteor shower, so named as the meteors appear to be radiant in the Gemini composition. The first recorded observation of river boats was on the Mississippi River in 1833, and is more intensive every year since then.
Every December, the Earth passes through this cloud of debris and an accident to an environment is 79,000 miles (127,000 km) per hour, where it usually fights and is create a light show.
This year, it will reach around 100 hours per hour about 2 a.m. PT, according to Bill Cooke NASA.
