Geminids Gala: A Celestial Spectacle in the December Night Sky

The Geminids, a multicolored meteor shower, will dazzle the night sky on Dec. 13 and 14.

Anticipate up to 120 bright "shooting stars" per hour during the peak, a celestial spectacle.

The annual Geminid meteor shower is less known than the Perseids but promises an impressive display.

Occurring from Nov. 19 to Dec. 24, it peaks on Dec. 13, offering a rare astronomical treat.

This year's Geminids boast the absence of the moon, providing optimal darkness for stargazing.

The radiant point in the constellation Gemini ensures a high display of meteors above the horizon.

It truly is high!!

Geminid meteors, fast and bright, exhibit a unique feature—they are the only multicolored shooting stars.

NASA reveals that these meteors can be yellow, white, or green, adding to their celestial allure.

A rainbow!

Unlike other meteor showers, the Geminids are caused by an asteroid named 3200 Phaethon.

Could you observe the last meteor showers?

Measuring 3.2 miles in diameter, Phaethon, once possibly part of a comet, now leaves meteoroids in its wake.

Gear up for skywatching and witness the Geminids with the naked eye or invest in stargazing tools for an enhanced cosmic experience.
