This general view shows the Geminids meteor shower from the Prudencio Llach observatory in San Juan Talpa, 40 kms south of San Salvador on December 13, 2012. The US space agency NASA said on December 10 that the best meteor shower of the year, a display of shooting stars known as the Geminids, began on December 7 and was set to peak early on December 11, lasting for several days. The annual Geminids meteor shower was first glimpsed late in the 19th century, but at that time 'the shower was weak and attracted little attention'.
