Geminids Meteor Shower

November 15, 2023 - December 24, 2023

GeminidsThe best Meteor shower of the year is happening. The Geminids Meteor Shower is truly astonishing, boasting about 150 meteors per hour at it’s peak. The meteors are produced by an asteroid, which means you can expect some different colors. This might include white, yellow, and even green shooting stars.

This year, the peak of the Geminids Meteor Shower will peak on the night of Wednesday, December 13th. The shower is expected to be visible by 10:00pm EST, which means you don’t have to stay awake too late. As always, we have some tips for viewing the geminids:

 

  • Give your eyes twenty minutes to adjust.
  • Find a location far away from city lights.
  • Avoid looking at unnatural light (cell phones) while viewing the shower.
  • This shower is active in the Gemini constellation, southeast. However, shooting stars tend to show up everywhere.
