Catch the Spectacular Geminids in Mid-December: A Popular Annual Meteor Shower
This strikingly popular event in the world of astronomy, known as the Geminids, will be visible on the evening of December 13th, lasting into the early morning hours of the subsequent day, right until sunrise. This meteor shower, an annual fixture in the mid-December night sky, owes its name to the Gemini constellation. The reason for this is the illusion of these incandescent meteors seeming to originate from the location of this constellation in the celestial dome. These luminous meteors blaze across the sky at a staggering speed of 35 kilometres per second, making this spectacle a truly unforgettable experience.
