The yearly Geminid meteor shower will be dazzling tomorrow night, so ask your parents if you can stay up to check it out! The shower’s peak on the night of December 13 to the early hours of December 14 is expected to be a brilliant one, filled with colorful shooting stars. “The best times are probably before the moon rises, when it will be dark still,” said Geza Gyuk, an astronomer at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, Illinois. The bright moon will make the fainter meteors harder to see.
