Explore Geminid Shower, Blazer David and more!

In a spectacular case of bad timing, the full Moon coincides with the annual Geminid meteor shower. Don't feel put out. There's still something for everyone, including a consolation prize. The post Supermoon and Geminids Duke it Out appeared first on Sky & Telescope.

It's time for the Geminids meteor shower! Should be fairly good with 60-80 per hour. But there is a waning gibbous moon that will affect viewing. So try to get out before moonrise in your area in order to get the best show!
