Event Details

The famous winter meteor shower will sling bright shooting stars in mid-December, marking the brightest shower of the year. The shower peaks the night of Dec. 13-14, according to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke. The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers every year because the individual meteors are bright, and they come fast and furious: This year, there will be more than 1 per minute, reaching 100 meteors per hour…”The best time to view the Geminids is around 2 a.m. local time,” Cooke said. “The moon will be first quarter, so it will set around midnight; there will be no moonlight to interfere with the Geminids this year.”
