Geminid Meteor Shower Happening Now

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Clear skies and cold temperatures should lead to excellent visibility for the meteor shower Wednesday night and Thursday night.

This should be the best meteor shower of the year due to the late moon-rise which doesn’t occur until around 2:55am and it’s a crescent moon which will have less light and better viewing conditions.
