Meteor shower here until tomorrow

Last night offered the best display in New Zealand skies of the meteor shower currently raining down on the planet, but it will still be around tonight and tomorrow.

It is the Geminid shower, which the earth passes through annually.

Shooting stars were reported last night from various parts of the country.

Tomorrow morning's display will peak between 2am and sunrise.
