Year’s Strongest Meteor Shower Has Begun

The Geminids meteor shower has started and will peak on the night of December 13-14.

The Geminids are considered the strongest meteor shower of the year, with up to 120 meteors per hour.

The meteor shower is caused by debris from the asteroid 3200 Phaethon.

The best time to view the Geminids is after midnight, when the constellation Gemini is high in the sky.

Stargazers should find a dark location away from city lights and give their eyes at least 20 minutes to adjust to the darkness.

The Geminids can be seen from anywhere in the world, but the best viewing is in the Northern Hemisphere.

This year's Geminids will be visible from December 4-17, but the peak viewing time is the night of December 13-14.
