ISRAEL-GEMINID-METEORS

Israelis enjoy a hot water spring on the shore of the Dead Sea near the Israeli Kibbutz of Ein Gedi as they watch the sky looking for Geminid meteor streaks above Judean desert early December 14, 2012. The meteor display, known as the Geminid meteor shower because it appears to radiate from the constellation Gemini, is thought to be the result of debris cast off from an asteroid-like object called 3200 Phaethon. The shower is visible every December. AFP PHOTO/MENAHEM KAHANA (Photo credit should read MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images)
