The best meteor show of the year

Don't forget that the Geminids meteor shower peaks over the 12-14th December. The best viewing times (for North American viewers) will be around midnight local time on the nights of 12/13 & 13/14 December. Meteor rates of up to 60-80 per hour can be expected from dark sky sites and around a third of that rate for those of us in a city.
