Best Meteor Shower of 2007 Peaks Dec. 13
Generally speaking, depending on your location, Gemini begins to come up above the east-northeast horizon right around the time evening twilight is coming to an end. So you might catch sight of a few early Geminids as soon as the sky gets dark....

The Geminids begin to appear noticeably more numerous in the hours after 10 p.m. local time, because the shower's radiant is already fairly high in the eastern sky by then. The best views, however, come around 2 a.m., when their radiant point will be passing very nearly overhead.


We're supposed to have crappy weather, so I'm guessing I won't get to see anything...darn it.

Yeah, you got me all excited there, because the husband is a huge astronomy buff. Then I remembered we're in the middle of a snow storm. So not so much with the meteor gazing.

My weather isn't going to be much better. I hope I can glimpse something.
