Star attraction: How to catch the biggest meteor shower of the year
The biggest meteor shower of the year takes place this month, providing us with an amazing spectacle in the night skies. RT has all the information you need to enjoy the celestial show.
The Geminids start on December 4 [b][u]and peak on December 13, 14 or 15, depending on what time zone you are watching from.
After allowing your eyes to adjust for about 30 minutes, the Geminid meteors will start to appear overhead in clusters, with gaps in between each burst of visual delight.
By 2am, the meteors will increase to about 100 per hour in darker areas, with people living in suburbs expected to see 30-40 per hour, and people in cities seeing even fewer.
