The Geminid Meteor Shower is one of the best (if not the best) meteor shower of the year. Geminid Meteors are bright with a (seasonally festive) greenish hue that leave long lasting dust trails in the sky. This year the sky will be phenomenal with only a 1% waxing gibbous Moon, which will set during dusk. The lack of a bright Moon will certainly make for best case scenario conditions for the best meteor display of the year! The Observatory opens at 6:30 pm with views of the night sky including distant nebulae and galaxies. As meteors become more frequent the Observatory 24 inch telescope will be closes and everybody will set up outside to watch the peak of the meteor shower.
