Under perfect conditions, the Geminids are great viewing because the display can produce up to 120 meteors per hour. There will be far less than that visible this year, but the Geminid meteors move at 22 miles per second, about half the speed of meteors in the Perseid or Leonid meteor showers and with their brightness, you should still be able to see some meteors if you're looking.
For the best viewing, NASA recommends looking during the pre-dawn hours on Dec. 14 and getting as far away from the artificial lights of the city as possible.
NASA will be hosting a Reddit AMA on Dec. 12 at 2pm to talk about the Geminids, meteors, and comets. NASA meteor experts Bill Cooke, Danielle Moser and Rhiannon Blaauw, all from NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, will be answering questions. If it's cloudy in your area, you can tune into a stream here to get a good look at the Geminid Meteor Shower.
