PAS held it annual Geminids Meteor Shower Observation at the roof deck of the Manila Observatory, Ateneo de Manila University,
which was aimed to the Moon, Saturn and Venus for everybody to see. Marnelli Ateinza used a green laser light pointer in teaching the guest the constellations and stars that are visible that night. Mr. Allen Yu who gave a trivia about the Manila Observatory roof deck also joined the evening event. He also told us that it was years since he was last visited a PAS observation in the Manila Observatory. Later in the evening Ronald Tanco came in and chat with the PASers there.
