The Geminids are considered one of the best meteor showers.
An Asteroid Meteor Shower
Most meteor showers are caused by the Earth passing through the tail of a comet, however the Geminids shower is caused by an asteroid.
The Geminids is considered to be one of the most spectacular meteor showers of the year.
Remember you need to be patient to view meteors.
Dress up warm and bring a blanket. Choose a spot away from bright lights preferably where the sky is dark.
Give your eyes about 20-30 minutes to adjust to the dark
You can sometimes see over 100 meteors an hour at its peak.
To find Gemini, look in the northeastern sky for the constellation Orion, which is easy to spot by the three stars in the hunter’s “belt.”
Now look up and to the right of Orion to see Gemini, high in the northeastern sky.
For best results, you should look slightly away from Gemini so that you can see meteors with longer “tails”
