Best Meteor Shower of 2010 Arrives Next Week

Make note:

What should be the best meteor shower of 2010 will occur beginning on the evening of Monday, Dec. 13.

Like most meteor showers, the Geminids will be at their best after midnight (early on the morning of Dec. 14), when the Earth is heading directly into the meteoroid stream. But some will be visible earlier in the night, on the evening of Dec. 13, because the meteors radiant —where they appear to originate — is nearly circumpolar, so they will stay in view above the horizon all night.
