Geminids Making The Most of Their Annual Appearence

Because you haven’t had enough this week, here’s more star watching news: The Geminid Meteor Shower is going to peak tomorrow morning (Friday) before dawn, so if you’d like to get a glimpse of meteors falling from the sky, get up early Friday and look up.

On an unclouded morning, you can see up to 50 meteors per hour shoot through the upper atmosphere. Meteor showers occur when the Earth passes through a debris cloud of meteors or cast-offs from comets. Most fragments are only as big as a grain of sand, but when accelerated to 30 miles per second, they make a bright streak in the sky when they burn up some 50 miles up in the atmosphere.

NASA says that another meteor shower, appearing for the first time this year, could add to the count of Geminids on Dec. 13th.
