Geminid meteor shower of 2023 peaks tonight. Watch it live online

The Geminid meteor shower of 2023 is here, and it looks to be one of the year’s best celestial fireworks displays.

Thanks to a dark one-day old new moon and generally favorable weather conditions throughout the United States, tonight looks like a great night to catch the peak of this annual meteor shower. Skywatchers in areas with dark skies could see as many as 100 meteors per hour, according to SpaceWeather.com.
