Look up tonight to see the best meteor shower of the year

How to watch one of the year's top meteor showers

It's lit. Or, at least, the sky will be.

Tonight, Earth will pass through a stream of gravelly asteroid debris creating Geminid meteor shower.

"The Geminid meteor shower is almost 200 years old, according to known records - the first recorded observation was in 1833 from a riverboat on the Mississippi River - and is still going strong". The farther away from light pollution you are, the better the show will be.

If you're willing to stay up past your bedtime and fearless the freezing temperatures - it's expected to be in the 20s this evening in the city - you'll be treated to a look at the annual Geminid meteor shower, the best display of the year.

"Don't fixate on looking toward Gemini", Kelly Beatty, a senior editor at Sky & Telescope, said in the statement. Because of that, LGDSO won't be hosting a public watch event. It's known as one of the best and most magnificent showers of the year.

The Geminids will become visible this evening, but the best viewing will be after midnight and before 4 AM. Just your own two eyes.

Additionally, Cantor said Taylor sent her inappropriate photos and a video of himself masturbating in the shower. He also pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint.

"Geminid activity is broad", said Bill Cooke, of the NASA Meteoroid Environment Office, in a NASA press release.

But Sabin cautions to keep expectations in check, and the best you can hope for is about half that.

The show should peak around 2 a.m., though the Gemini constellation is rising in local skies around 7:30 p.m.in the east-northeast, Sabin said. There's plenty of viewing time before that.

For those who won't stay up that late, don't fret. Find a field or somewhere with an open view of a cloud-free sky where you can lie down and look up for hours on end.

The meteor shower could be seen originating from the Geminid constellation even though they are visible anywhere in the sky. Some light wind is possible after midnight.

The only equipment you need to see the meteors are your eyes. The agency is streaming the meteor shower tonight, broadcasting from the Automated Lunar and Meteor Observatory at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
