Christmas lights won’t be the only thing lighting up the night sky, this December.
From now until December 17th, you have a chance to see meteors at night – as part of the Geminid meteor shower.
If you don’t have time, each night, to check out the sky, try to pop outside – look up on the nights of December 13th, through the 14th. That’s when the meteor shower is at its brightest peak.
You may see a few of the 150 meteors, which will shower the sky, each hour.
One issue with seeing Geminid during its peak: Light, from the full moon, may compete for attention – and block some of the meteor shower’s visibility.
