One of the best meteor showers of the year will start tonight, Friday Dec. 13 and go until dawn on Saturday morning. The Geminid meteor shower peaks late Friday night into early Saturday morning reports NBC News on Dec. 13.

The views in the night sky should be spectacular because the waxing moon sets before the prime time viewing hours of the meteor shower. The best viewing hours are 4 a.m. until just before dawn on Saturday. You should see from 90 to 120 meteors and hour. The best places to catch this show is in a light-free area, where city lights don’t interfere with the black canvas of the sky.

You can watch the meteor shower from your yard, or you can watch it online as it will be live-streamed.
NASA and Slooh’s live webcasts can be found here for the live-streaming of the meteor shower.

NASA is hosting a web chat about the meteor shower and that starts at 11 p.m. on Friday night. The chat will go on until about 3 a.m. and the experts will answer questions about the meteor showers. Hook up with NASA’s live chat here.
