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?
