Had clear skies again in central Florida (Lakeland), but couldn't stay out for too long.
>From 10:00 PM local (3:00 UT, Dec. 14) to 11:00 I observed 16 Geminids and 1 sporadic.
LM at 5.5; 20% obscured view.  Faced toward south of the radiant (Orion region) to avoid higher light pollution to the north.
Not a great display but at least I had good skies.  I had anticipated poor skies based on earlier weather forecasts.
