San Francisco Prime Place to View Geminid Shower

Posted: Dec. 26th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Those lucky enough to have been in San Francisco on the 13th and 14th got a second shot at seeing the majesty of the stars as they come alive during the Geminid Meteor Shower. Following closely on the heels of the Leonid shower, the Geminid was a dazzling display of nearly 120 falling stars an hour, which was offered an incredibly beautiful evening under the stars.

Did you miss the Leonid meteor shower last month, and some have wishes you need to make? Don’t kick yourself too hard, because another winter meteor shower is set to peak later this week, and it'll showcase some brilliant shooting stars.

The annual Geminid meteor shower is viewable from December 13 and 14, throughout the night and early morning. Astronomers believe that, thanks to a combination of the shower's increased strength in recent years and its presence during a nearly moonless week, it’s set to be a pretty impressive display for stargazers.
