Geminids Meteor Shower

Date: December 13, 2020 - December 14, 2020

Time: All Day

Event Description

The Geminids is the king of the meteor showers. It is considered by many to be the best shower in the heavens, producing up to 120 multicolored meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by debris left behind by an asteroid known as 3200 Phaethon, which was discovered in 1982. The shower runs annually from December 7-17. It peaks this year on the night of the 13th and morning of the 14th. The morning of the 15th could also be nearly as active this year. The nearly new moon will ensure dark skies for what should be an excellent show.

Meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
