Expert: Geminids Meteor Shower

News

The Geminids meteor showers will peak on the evening of Dec. 13 and continue until early morning Dec. 14. The meteors will be bright and you can see up to 120 meteors an hour stream across the sky. Observers need to go to areas with little light pollution.

The Geminids are usually one of the best meteor showers of the year.  While we won't be able to see much in Montreal because of the city lights, dark places away from the city should see over 100 shooting stars per hour.  Meteor showers are best seen without any special equipment -- just look up, stay warm, and enjoy the show.”—Kelly Lepo
