Whether you’re a keen stargazer or not, the annual Geminid Meteor Shower sounds pretty spectacular.

Considered one of the most reliable in the meteor shower calendar, the Geminids peak during mid-December each year, from the night of December 13 into the morning of December 14.

According to NASA, the Geminids first started appearing in the mid-1800s, with only 10 – 20 meteors seen per hour.

The shower has since grown, and these days, under ideal conditions, 120 Geminid meteors can be seen.

So, why not take a look up into the sky?
