The Geminid Meteor Shower


Recommended Posts



The Geminid Meteor Shower is considered among many astronomers to be the most reliable of the annual meteor showers and in 2012 it will be even better. The Geminids are the last of the meteor showers of this year and peak on the evening of December 13/14.


Meteor rates could be as much as 60 or more meteors per hour with good observing conditions. There should also be good opportunities to see meteors - also known as 'shooting stars' - a day or so either side of the peak and a few days leading up to it.
