It’s almost time to bask in the beauty of the annual Geminid meteor shower.
Often the most active meteor shower of the year, the Geminids occur annually in early to mid-December.
This year, they are set to peak tonight, Dec. 13, 2019.
The Geminids can be seen all night long, but they should be most active around 9 p.m., peaking around 2 a.m. and lasting into the morning hours of the next day.
However, The Farmer’s Almanac notes that the Geminids will likely be washed out to some extent by the bright Moon, which will have been full just one night prior.
For the best viewing experience, go out when the Moon is low in the sky and face away from its shining surface.
The show will still be worth a trip into the outdoors, as you can often see them streak through the sky every minute or two throughout the night.
