Don't miss the best meteor shower of the year

On the evening of December 13, the peak of the Geminid meteor shower promises a spectacular show of shooting stars.
by Christopher MacManus

In 2010, photographer Henry Lee snapped this stunning image of a Geminid meteor flying over the horizon of Alabama Hills, Calif.

Did you miss out on this year's keen Orionid meteor shower or the super perigee moon? Don't fret, as a mega meteor shower this Thursday evening could appease those craving an extraterrestrial event.
Set your alarm for 11 p.m. ET on Thursday, as that's when the Geminid meteor shower peaks. It could deliver dozens (or even hundreds) of visible meteors per hour until about 3 a.m. on December 14. Keep your eyes (and scopes) toward the constellation Gemini for the best view of the shiny shower.
