In just a few short nights, we might be in position to catch the best meteor shower of the year.
The Geminid meteor shower is expected to peak Thursday night and the wee-hours of Friday morning. The best viewing time should come around 2 o'clock early Friday morning. Astronomers say to look toward the east or northeast sky in an area away from city lights. Approximately 60 to 120 Geminid meteors should move across the sky each hour. Mars should also be visible along with the meteors.
