Every year the Earth passes through the debris stream of rock comet 3200 Phaethon and the result is a meteor shower known as the Geminid meteor shower. The show peaks this weekend between the hours of midnight and 6am Saturday and Sunday. Viewing conditions will be ideal Friday night into Saturday morning as skies are forecast to remain clear. There may be a few high clouds to contend with on Saturday night into Sunday morning. What about moonlight? Well the moonlight might interfere some too this weekend though it will only be a 1st quarter moon and not full. So here's the deal, find a spot away from city lights before dawn this weekend and look up and potentially count up to 120 meteors per hour! Good luck and enjoy!
