December 13, 14 –
Geminids Meteor Shower.

The Geminids is the king of the meteor showers.

It is considered by many to be the best shower in the heavens, producing up to 120 multicolored meteors per hour at its peak.

It is produced by debris left behind by an asteroid known as 3200 Phaethon, which was discovered in 1982.

The Shower runs annually from December 7-17.

It peaks this year on the night of the 13th and morning of the 14th.

Unfortunately the nearly full moon will block out many of the meteors this year, but the Geminids are so Bright and Numerous that it could still be a Good Show.

Best viewing will be from a Dark Location.

Meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini but can appear anywhere in the sky.
