Meteor shower tonight

13 December 2009 by Karen

This is a bit last minute, but a reminder to watch the skies tonight for the annual Geminids shower. You should be able to see the meteors between around 8 and 10pm in the UK. It should be a good view – just had a look outside and the sky is clear, plus being close to the new moon there’s not much moonlight. There’ll be about 100 meteors every hour which should be visible with the naked eye. It’s pretty chilly out there so if you’re venturing out wrap up warm.
