  • How to watch the Geminid meteor shower despite a bright moon   Jun 17, 2021, 10:24 AM CDT

    TORONTO --   One of the most eye-catching meteor showers of the year might be harder to see than usual because these so-called shooting stars will have to battle an almost full moon for the limelight.

    The Geminid meteor shower, which streaks through the sky every year in December, can include up to 140 meteors per hour, according to NASA, making it one of the biggest natural light shows the night sky has to offer.

    But the peak viewing nights for the shower this year are on Dec. 13 and 14, right after the full moon hits on Dec. 12.
