It's time to look toward the night sky for another beautiful light display. According to Time, the Geminid meteor shower, which is expected to be one of the best meteor showers of the year, will be able to be seen tonight (December 13th) into tomorrow morning (December 14th). And the forecast right now is predicting a clear night, so we should get a real good view. But...you will have to get up real early for the peak time, which astronomers say will be around 2am. That's because that's when it'll be the biggest contrast with the sky being at its' darkest--and there will be the most meteors shooting through the sky with as many as around 120 per hour.
Heads-up, Earthlings! The annual Geminid meteor shower has arrived, peaking overnight Dec. 13-14. It's a good time to bundle up! Then, go outside and let the universe blow your mind! Get the details: https://t.co/uv9HpEO228 pic.twitter.com/tZOSn0TZjH
