The Geminid Meteor Shower peaks on December 14th! Some shooting stars associated with the shower are expected to be visible each night from December 7th to 16th.

From the L&A Dark Sky Viewing Area you may be able to see around 90 meteors per hour. Please note that the Moon will be 18 days old at the time of peak activity, and being so close to Full Moon will severely limit the observations that will be possible.

To see the most meteors, the best place to look is not directly at the radiant itself, but at any dark patch of sky which is around 30–40° away from it. It is at a distance of around this distance from the radiant that meteors will show reasonably long trails without being too spread out.

Admission is free. Bundle up in warm clothes and enjoy the show! For more information visit www.DarkSkyViewing.com.
