Graphic from Sky Safari showing the northeastern horizon with trees and the radiant of the geminid meteor shower against the pretty star filled skyDespite the chill in the air, December provides one of the best meteor showers of the year — the Geminids!

This meteor shower is particularly interesting because the source of the shower actually comes from an asteroid (3200 Phaethon), instead of a comet.

The shower will be fairly active in the early evening between 6pm and moonrise around 10pm. The brightness of the Moon will interfere a bit, but you can still catch a celestial sparkler!
