During the Geminid Meteor Shower Comet Lovejoy C/2013 R1 is captured in a lucky telephoto frame together with a Geminid meteor. The Geminid is one of the best annual meteor showers for stargazers around the world that peaks just before mid-December. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see another bright Geminid meteor of this night. Comet Lovejoy appears smaller (below right of the meteor) in this wide-angle view. P-M Heden,
