The Geminids is a meteor shower formed from the debris of the Comet 3200 Phaeton burning up in our atmosphere. Originally astronomers believed that this comet was a large asteroid, this was due to it's lack of ice. The researchers eventually decided that the lack of ice was due to the fact that the comets path took it close to the sun, it was then classed as an extinct comet or a 'Rocket Comet'
