Keep Your Eye on the Sky Tonight! [AUDIO]
Skywatchers around the world are in for a treat tonight! All you have to do is look up and check out the dozens of bright objects streaking across the sky! The Geminid meteor shower is set to peak late tonight and into tomorrow morning.
The objects that will be on display are remnants of the asteroid Phaethon that burn up when they hit the Earth’s atmosphere. As a bonus, the Geminid meteor shower may get a boost from dust left behind by Comet Wirtanen, according to NASA. Q2 Meteorologist Ed McIntosh has details on when and where to watch!
We should have a great view with only partly cloudy skies expected. By the way, this is the last meteor shower of 2012!
