The actual source of the shooting stars is a stream of debris left behind by asteroid 3200 Phaethon, making this one of the only major showers not to originate from a comet. This shower is called "Geminid" because it is named after the constellation 'Gemini'which is where the meteors seem to emerge, it is believed.
If you can't get out of the city or have no way of securing an unobstructed view of the Geminid meteor shower don't fret Slooh has your back.
On the nights of December 13 and 14, your family will have the chance to see a slew of multi-colored meteors streak across the sky.
The Geminid meteor shower is considered to be one of the best displays in the night sky, and this year will peak during the early hours of Friday. Just look up and you should see some streaking across the sky. They typically enter Earth's atmosphere at about 22 miles per second, about half the speed of the Leonid meteors, which soar through the darkness each November.
These showers were first reported in the mid-1800s, where about 10-20 meteors would whiz past the earth's atmosphere per hour. They say the lights should be bright enough to be classified as fireballs.
According to meteorologists at Accuweather, due to its high activity the meteor shower can be viewed anytime after sunset with the best viewing time in Europe expected to be just after midnight.
The best thing about meteor showers is they require no equipment to spot.
Nasa also advises that you avoid looking at your phone while your out trying to see the meteors as it will take your eyes longer to adjust to the dark skies.
The cosmic debris that causes the Geminids comes from a unusual object called 3200 Phaethon, which is named after a son of the ancient Greek god Helios. The Geminids are the only meteor shower created by an asteroid and not a comet.
