You may not be one to stay up late, but if you're going to make an exception, Wednesday night and early Thursday morning would be the time to do it.

On December 13th and 14th, the Geminid meteor shower is expected to be one of the best shows of the year.

The Geminids will peak with up to 120 meteors per hour.

It’s known to be one of the most active meteor showers of the year.  And with the clear night skies forecasted for the coming days, it will be perfect weather for viewing. 

The best viewing time is between 2 a.m. and dawn Thursday, December 14th. 

Happy viewing.
