The Geminid Meteor Shower will peak Wednesday night around 2:00 to 3:00 in the morning. Look high in the southwestern sky for your best shot at seeing one or more of the meteoroids (shooting stars).
The best breaks in our cloudiness for a good view will come later into the night, easily after 9:00 or 10:00pm, and with gusty northwest winds and temperatures in the middle 20s, you’ll want to bundle up big time if you’re going to stay outside a while.
It can take your eyes 15 to 30 minutes to adjust for best viewing, but there could be an average of more than 1 meteoroid per minute during the peak of the event. Being away from city lights is best.
