Space Events This December You Should See

Sometimes, interesting things happen in space. Whether it’s meteor showers or a solar eclipse, we got you covered. Here’s what you might be interested in.

December 6 – Peak of Cassiopeid Showers

These meteor showers might not be as well known, but they are still something you might be interested in. On the morning of December 6th, head out and look in the constellation of Cassiopeid. It’s not the greatest show, but you can still see a few meteors per hour.

December 7 – Peak of Piuppid-Velid Shower

There are always meteor showers going on. On the night of December 7th, you can spot a few meteors per hour. Once again, this isn’t one of the major showers.

December 14 – Geminid Meteor Shower Peak

Now here we go with one of the best meteor showers all year. Between December 13-15 you can expect the best views, with up to 120 meteors per hour.

December 23 – Ursid Meteor Shower Peak

It seems like we always have showers happening. The Ursids happen between December 17th to December 26th, with them peaking on December 22 and December 23. They usually produce about 10 meteors per hour.
