The Geminid meteor shower peaks this year on December 13th and 14th. Forecasters say meteor rates could exceed 100 per hour for observers under dark rural skies. For best results, start your meteor watch on Monday night, December 13th, around midnight.
Keep an eye out for Geminids until sunrise on Tuesday, Dec. 14th. There’s no special trick to seeing the Geminids. Bundle up for maximum warmth, go outside, lie down and look up.
Geminids can appear in any part of the sky, but all their tails will point back to the radiant in the constellation Gemini. Check spaceweather.com for updates, images and a sky map.
