    Default Geminids meteor shower to light up the December skies in spectacular farewell to 2019

    The Geminids meteor shower takes place every year as the Earth passes through the debris field of ‘extinct comet’ 3200 Phaethon and is often the highlight of every stargazer’s year, thanks to its bright, multi-colored fireballs.

    Asteroid 3200 Phaethon was first discovered in 1983 and is the third-largest potentially hazardous near-Earth asteroid (NEO) we know of, with a diameter of 5km, or roughly half the size of the space rock which helped drive the dinosaurs to extinction 65 million years ago.

    The Geminids will begin on the evening of December 4 and peak between December 14 and 15, with an expected peak rate of 88 meteors per hour, before it finally wraps up on December 17.

    Currently Streaming the Geminids

    Year in and year out the Geminids are currently the most dependable meteor shower.

    Unfortunately, they are active in December when temperatures are often cold and skies cloudy in the northern hemisphere. This year however, there will be a nearly full moon in the sky as the Geminids peak on the night of December 13/14. Unfortunately this means that the fainter meteors will be obscured by the bright moonlight and that total counts will be reduced drastically…

    But don’t worry: we offer you 5 live streams of this shower through the US for you to have a chance to enjoy the show no matter where you are.
    AMS Live Meteor Shower

    The Geminids are still active after their peak but we don’t expect anything major.
    Our live streaming is now done but you can try to catch some meteors watching the replays on our Youtube Channel.
