Geminid Meteor Shower Watch Live Streaming: 2012

Coincidentally, it seems there will be an excellent viewing oppo rtunity tonight for not one, but possibly two meteor showers. Including a yet un-named shower, possibly explaining the recent multiple spectacular meteor reports in the last day.

With recent reports about a few large meteors making the news before the scheduled peak of the Geminids shower, it might very well be indicative of an excellent show tonight. Even better - viewing conditions are forecast to be virtually ideal due to the current moon phase.

Keep your digital cams and tripods handy!

Skywatchers around the world are in for a treat tonight, as the annual Geminid meteor shower is poised to put on a spectacular show.

The Geminids will peak overnight tonight (Dec. 13) with the moon at its new phase. The skies will thus be free of the moon's glare, allowing viewers in rural areas to see perhaps 100 or more meteors per hour, experts say.

A new and as-yet unnamed meteor shower may also make an appearance tonight, ramping up the celestial display even further.
