METEOR SHOWER TONIGHT

December 13, 2007 at 12:20 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

The Geminid Meteor Shower peaks tonight, and if clouds don’t obscure our view, it could be pretty spectacular. Peak viewing will be Midnight Thursday/Friday until sunrise Friday morning, but you could see some meteors as early as sunset.

The Geminid shower is usually the best meteor shower of the year because they travel very slowly, and they’re pretty bright.

Early in the evening, look to the east-northeast horizon. As the evening progresses, the meteors will appear higher in the sky.

As always, city lights may obscure your view, so seek out a darker place. I like to go to Palo Pinto County because it’s not too far from the Metroplex, and it’s plenty dark. If you live in downtown Dallas, you might want to head east or northeast, up toward Hunt County or Kaufman county.

Just bundle up because temperatures will be in the 40s.
