Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini looks at our chance to see the Geminid meteor shower.

Despite the cold, the Geminid meteor shower in mid-December is one of the best.

This year, we won't have cooperating skies BUT the meteors can be visible before and after the peak so keep an eye out for activity.

Wednesday night into Thursday morning is when the shower is expected to produce the most meteors. One meteor per hour is possible when sky conditions are good. The moon is in a waning crescent phase so it is thin and won't be visible until the very early morning hours.

If you want to try your luck this week and hope clouds will be broken enough, dress warmly and give your eyes about 30 minutes to adjust to the darkness. Best time to view is between midnight and 4 a.m.
