The 2012 Geminid meteor shower

The 2012 Geminid meteor shower is fast approaching and will peak on the 13/14 and will probably still be going strong on the 14/15.  It is predicted that the majority of the meteors will fall an hour or two after midnight but will be visible much earlier in the evening.  The new moon falls on December 13 so we will have darker skies for viewing.  No matter what time of the evening you head out to view the meteor shower be sure to give your eyes time to adjust to the darkness and then slowly start scanning the sky in all directions.  While you can see the meteor shower from backyards in the city there are also better spots for viewing. 

Check out ten tips for watching the Geminid meteor shower from the Earth Sky website.  Dress warmly, sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
