Monday (Dec. 13) 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Geminid meteor shower is one of the most active and reliable meteor showers of the year! They streak through the sky every minute or two all night.

It is unique because the meteors are visible all night long, since the constellation Gemini arises just an hour or two after nightfall. Most meteor showers require you to wait until midnight or pre-dawn for the best viewing.

The constellation Gemini is the radiant of the Geminid meteor shower, which means that it is the meteor shower’s point of origin. The Geminid meteors will appear to fall away from the constellation Gemini.

This is the best meteor shower of the year so reserve these limited tickets early.

This event is weather-dependent and will be canceled by e-mail 24 hours before the scheduled start time in the event of a cloud cover forecast greater than 30%. We will hold a backup night on December 14 or tickets can be used for our other Schoolyard Observatory events in case of cloud cover.

Dress appropriately for being still in nighttime outdoor weather.
