Geminid meteor shower

2014 Dec 14

The Geminid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity.

Some shooting stars will be visible each night from 7 Dec to 16 Dec, but the best show will be expected on or around 14 December 2014.

The maximum number of meteors expected to be visible from a dark location is around 100 per hour (ZHR). The Moon will be 22 days old at the time of peak activity, and so will present minimal interference.

The radiant of the Geminid meteor shower is at around right ascension 06h30m21s , declination +33°00’00”.
