It's time for the annual end fo the year Geminid Meteor Shower!  According to Spaceweather.com,  "The Earth will pass through a stream of debris from extinct comet 3200 Phaethon, source of the annual Geminid meteor shower. Forecasters expect more than 100 meteors per hour to fly out of the constellation Gemini when the shower peaks on Dec. 13th and 14th. For most observers, the best time to look will be from 10 pm local time tonight to dawn on Monday morning."  

With that said, our skies will be mostly cloudy, and our chances of seeing the meteors will be rather low.   If you love looking up at things in space, sorry about that!  Oh well.
