The Geminids Shower Us Tonight!


As we enter the tail of the Pantheon 3200 asteroid every December, bits of dust enter our atmosphere at 80,000 mph producing cosmic fireworks(aka meteor showers).

So tonight, get some hot cocoa and look up between 2 and 5 am. Starwatchers who stay out for a few hours will be treated to perhaps hundreds of ‘shooting stars’. It going to be the best meteor shower of 2004!
