One of the coolest meteor showers of the year is set to peak on Wednesday night, but you may catch a few shooting stars on Tuesday night as well. It is a great time to get up, go outside and let the world blow your mind!
The Geminids takes place every year and usually occurs around the middle of December.
The American Meteor Society stated that on the peak night of December 13 and 14 between the hours of 1:00 and 2:00am local standard time (LST), an observer located in mid-northern latitudes under clear skies has the opportunity to view at least 75 Geminid meteors and those living in rural areas can watch more than hundreds of these meteors.

This year the astronomers will have the opportunity to analyse Phaethon closely in mid-December as it will make its nearest pass by Earth since it was found. In 2017, the moon won't be visible at the time of the event, which would make the meteor shower even more wonderful. In the southern hemisphere, you will have a subdued but still lovely show because Gemini doesn't rise very high above the local horizon.

The fix does, however, disable remote access to shared users, but this will be restored in a software update next week. Apple has been making news headlines in the past few weeks for security issues in its iOS and macOS products.
The Skirball Cultural Center is also closed, and the center tweeted that ticket holders for "Noah's Ark" will be issued refunds. The blazes brought evacuation orders for almost 200,000 people, destroyed almost 200 homes and have remained mostly out control.
The will-he, won't-he story of Giancarlo Stanton's offseason continues to be carried by national baseball reporters. Meanwhile the Yankees, tempted as they may be, are convinced they'll get there without adding such a weapon.
Leeann Tweeden posted this photo online that she says was taken while she was asleep on a flight back from a 2006 USO trip. "Some of the allegations against me are simply not true", he said during his address to the U.S.
