Skywatching: Geminid Showers

December 13, 2022 @ 8:00 pm 10:00 pm

One of the best meteor showers of the year – the Geminid meteor shower — will next peak on Tuesday, December 13, 2022.

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center and Little River Regional park will host a free skywatching event.

Learn about meteors and more! For example, did you know meteors, sometimes misleadingly called “shooting stars,” are streaks of light caused by cosmic debris interacting with Earth’s atmosphere. Typically, this debris has been left by a comet. In the case of the Geminids, the source is an asteroid, 3200 Phaethon.
