Get Ready to Greet the Geminid Meteor Shower!

The year’s most spectacular meteor shower is upon us. Prepare to enjoy the Geminids under a dark, moonless sky, when you might see more than 100 meteors per hour.


August's Perseids may have the nicer weather but the Geminids have the numbers. No annual shower is richer. Up to 120 meteors per hour might be visible under ideal circumstances giving you plenty of opportunities to make a wish upon a (shooting) star. No Moon will trouble the view so this year's Gems should be a visual feast. If possible, try to view the shower from a rural location to make the most of the opportunity. For help in finding a dark sky check out the interactive map at lighpollution.info.
