How to Watch the Geminid Meteor Shower This Month

The Geminid meteor shower is one of the most popular meteor showers of the year. It is known for its fast, bright meteors, and it can produce up to 120 meteors per hour at its peak.

The Geminids are active from December 4th to December 17th, with the peak occurring around December 14th.

Find a dark location: The best way to see the Geminids is to find a dark location away from city lights. The darker the sky, the more meteors you will be able to see.

Give your eyes time to adjust to the dark: It takes about 20-30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, so give yourself plenty of time before the shower starts.


Lie back and relax: The best way to view the shower is to lie back on a blanket or chair and relax. This will give you a wide view of the sky and make it easier to spot meteors.

Don't focus on one spot: The meteors will appear all over the sky, so don't focus on one spot in particular. Instead, keep your eyes scanning the sky and you will be more likely to spot meteors.

Be patient: It may take some time to see your first meteor. Be patient and don't give up.

The Geminid meteor shower is a great opportunity to see some amazing natural fireworks. So get out there and enjoy the show!
