The Geminid meteor shower is about to peak.
On Sunday night-Monday morning (Dec. 13/14), debris from “rock comet” 3200 Phaethon will fly out of the constellation Gemini, producing what many forecasters believe will be the best meteor display of 2020.
The best time to watch them is generally at around 2am, when the sky is at its darkest.
