  • The Geminid Meteor Shower Will Streak Across Vancouver Skies

Stargazers in Taiwan will have an opportunity to catch the Geminid meteor shower, which is forecast to produce a maximum of about 120 shooting stars per hour at its peak December 14, the Taipei Astronomical Museum said Friday.

And when it comes to the Geminids, although the meteors appear to originate from the Gemini constellation, they're visible from all parts of the sky - so it's good to be in a wide open space where you can scan the night sky with your eyes.

The showers, which will be the brightest of the year according to Space.com, will present the possibility of 120 meteors per hour at its peak.

The museum suggested stargazers go to areas where there are relatively few lights, to increase their chances of seeing as many meteors as possible.

That night, earthlings will be able to see another space phenomenon - the Leonids meteor shower reaches its peak.

"The moon will be first quarter, so it will set around midnight; there will be no moonlight to interfere with the Geminids this year". Geminid Meteor Shower 2018: Know When, Where and How to Watch The Celestial Spectacle in India. Actually, it's growing stronger.

Since then, the shower has only grown as Jupiter's gravity has pulled the stream of particles that follow asteroid 3200 Phaethon - which comprises the meteor shower - and moved them closer to Earth over time.

After you've found a cozy spot, recline on a fold-out chair or lie down so you can keep your eyes pointed at the shimmering sky.
