Geminid Meteor Shower in Adelaide

The Geminid Meteor Shower is a yearly event that happens in mid-December. It can be viewed from almost anywhere in the world and produces as many as 120 meteors per hour. I’m hoping that might even be enough to keep the kids interested …

The best time to view the Geminid meteor shower is on the mornings of December 14 and 15, with it starting on the morning of the 13th. Between the hours of 1 and 4 am should be the best times to catch a glimpse of the meteor shower.

If you can head out of town that would be best and you will want to find a place that allows you to have a clear view of the Northern sky.
