The Geminid meteors will shower the sky with shooting lights just in time for Christmas
The Geminid shower is different from other meteor showers because it is active throughout the night.
"With August's Perseids obscured by bright moonlight, the Geminids will be the best shower this year", NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke said in a statement.
According to Boyle, the rising of the crescent moon at 3:45am will not interfere with this year's display.
The annual Geminid meteor shower will peak between 7:30 p.m. December 13 and dawn December 14, with rates around one per minute, according to NASA. The peak viewing time will be around 12:30 a.m. Thursday, but you can still see meteors earlier or after that time.
Meteors, or shooting stars, are specs of dust that collide with our planet and burn up in the atmosphere.
Not only is the shower predicted to be one of the most dazzling shows ever with around 100 meteors per hour, the spectacular display will also be visible from nearly every country in the world. The best views will be in the Northern Hemisphere.
The meteors should be visible at 58° above the horizon streaming away from the constellation Gemini.
"The Geminid meteor shower is almost 200 years old, according to known records - the first recorded observation was in 1833 from a riverboat on the Mississippi River - and is still going strong".
The best way to view tonight's shower is with the human eye so there is no need to use binoculars or a telescope.
