Geminid meteor shower peaks in northern hemisphere


Recommended Posts



The annual Geminids meteor shower is peaking during Thursday night and into early Friday morning.


The meteors appear to radiate from a point near the star Castor, in the constellation Gemini.


In the Northern hemisphere, that is westward and nearly overhead in the early hours of Friday.


Sky watchers can expect an average of dozens of "shooting stars" per hour, made easier to see by darkness provided by the "new moon" phase.


And I can't see it! :angry:
