Q. Can the ISS astronauts see tonight's Geminid meteor shower?

NASA: Yes - but they are orbiting at 250 miles above the Earth, and the meteors are at about 47 miles. So the astronauts on the ISS would have to look DOWN towards the Earth to see the meteor shower instead of up.

I'm going to bed now ... (grin)
