For those of you who have ever seen the Geminids, you will know the time is coming to watch another worthwhile meteor shower.
The shower should be visible on the 13/14th of December, from 1:00am(Canberra time), with the radiant peaking around 2:12am. To see the shower, look North at the horizon or 80 degrees up. The moon will rise in the East as the morning progresses, and hopefully not wipe out the views of the shower!
As long as there is no clouds, bad smoke haze (from the fires) or annoying kids, you should be able to see around 20 meteors an hour. But expect more if it’s a clear night.
Remember, be patient as that first meteor may come after a little bit of waiting. I wish you all luck on the night!
