A meteoric shower can be seen from tonight until next Sunday.The famous and bright meteor shower will peak on the night of Dec. 13 and morning of Dec. 14.
What is it?
The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers every year because the individual meteors are bright, and the peak can see meteors stream across the sky at rates as high as 120 meteors an hour. Under light-polluted skies, fewer meteors will be visible.
Every year this meteoric shower occurs on the same dates between December 4 and17 December reaching the peek on December 13 or 14.
The meteors tend to peak about 2 a.m. local time, but can be seen as early as 9-10 p.m.
How to get the best view?
Meteor showers don’t require binoculars or telescopes to view — just your bare eyes. Find a comfortable spot to lie on the ground, far away from lights and ideally in a dark-sky area. Bring a blanket and dress warmly if you’re in cold weather. Give your eyes about 20-30 minutes to adjust to the dark, then sit back and enjoy the show.
