Anyone who wants to observe a breathtaking celestial event before the end of the year is in luck. The Geminid meteor shower will be visible in the night sky on December 13 and 14, and there's even more good news: you don't even need a telescope to experience it.\nThe Geminid meteor shower occurs every year, but due to moonlight conditions for December 13 and 14, there will be more meteors visible than normal. According to Space.com, you might be able to spot 20 to 30 each hour.\nOf course, you'll have to stay up pretty late if you're planning to catch the celestial light show. Visibility peaks at around 2 AM in your local timezone. However, you might be able to spot a few between 9 and 10 PM as well.\nThere are meteor showers all year long, and while the summer ones may be easier to watch due to warm weather, the Geminid meteor shower is one of the most vibrant.\nThis is due to the fact that this particular meteor shower tends to have a lot of fireballs, making things even brighter and easier to see.\nOf course, if you really want to get the best view of this amazing meteor shower, you'll have to find a viewing spot with as little light sources as possible. That means you might have to take a small trip outside of the city to find a good viewing spot.\nThe #Geminids meteor shower is currently active. Expect up to five per hour from a dark location if you are out observing over the next few days. The peak is on 13-14 December but numbers will be reduced this year due to the #Moon. #astronomy #meteorshower pic.twitter.com/ghG0aMXQm2— Steve Brown 🔭📷✨🌙 (@sjb_astro) December 4, 2019\nYou'll also have to arrive at your viewing spot about 20 minutes early so that your eyes can adjust to the darkness for a better viewing experience.\nView this post on Instagram . . . . . . . 星降る夜に . . . . . . . やっと会えた、久しぶりのお富士様😭💓 . 向かう道中、霙は降るは雲は一向に晴れないはで、明らかにGPVよりも悪い状況に、途中諦めて帰ろうとしたのだけど… 諦めきれずに寄り道してみたらミラクルが待っていました😭 お富士様も着いた当初は雲の中だったけど段々と姿を現し、よく見たら積もりたてのもふもふな頂で🙈 で結局、タイムリミットギリギリまで撮影w . 連れてってくれたリーダー( @mutsumi_._yy )には感謝してもしきれません🥺🙏✨ . これは流星が富士山の向こうに流れていった1枚に、変則技で流星部分を重ねたものです。(小さかったりで分かりにくいけど流星は計10個、散在流星も含まれてるかも。) そしてまた、星座の位置合わせ問題が… 出目金レンズの歪み補正はしてるつもりなのになぁ…何故かぴったり重ならなくて渦巻いたりしちゃう😣 巨匠の皆様にご教授願いたいです🥺 . . …あ、ウィルタネン彗星も撮れてるか確認しなきゃ🙉 . . .
