The shower is predicted to be at its maximum at around 2 am on December 14, when the Gemini constellation will be nearly overhead and the number of meteors can reach up to 120 per hour, he said.

NASA will livestream the Geminid shower beginning at 9 p.m. on December 13, from the Automated Lunar and Meteor Observatory at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Sky watchers can see dozens of Geminids per hour on December 13th and 14th as gravelly bits of the rock comet disintegrate in Earth's upper atmosphere.

Spectacular showers of up to 100 shooting stars an hour will light up the skies over Britain later this week - although you'll have to get up early to catch them.

The Geminids could be the best show of the year because of the darkness. In 2017, the moon won't be visible at the time of the event, which would make the meteor shower even more unbelievable. Starting around 9pm, you should give it a try! "The shower will start at around 10 pm on December 13 when the Gemini constellation will be visible in the north-eastern sky, a little above and right of the familiar Orion constellation", Duari said. It'll take 20-30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.

The Geminid meteor shower itself was first noted in the 1860s.

With slower moving meteors composed of hard asteroid rock these shooting stars are brighter than most and can last for well over a second as they streak across the night sky. The meteor really come from the rocky space object called Phaethon. It could either be a near-Earth asteroid or a dead comet, but there's no consensus about what it is, according to NASA.

"If the Earth, in its yearly motion around the Sun happens to pass through such a trail of debris of dust particles, the small dust particles enter the Earth's atmosphere with considerable speed". This year the astronomers will have the opportunity to analyse Phaethon closely in mid-December as it will make its nearest pass by Earth since it was found.
