Hi Leo,

I think that this kind of "clusters" are common. The 12th of December at 
23:38TU I recorded and saw 3 geminids in a minute.

Moreover I have noticed around 4 or 5 more of these clusters, with 2 
geminids in less than 3 minutes, appearing in the same place of the sky 
(+/- 5-10º)!!. I suppose that they are related (although they have 
thousand of km between them) , is that wrong?
