The Geminid meteor shower starts today, so hope for clear skies that will let you see a beautiful show of green fireballs today and tomorrow. This will be the last — and strongest — meteor shower of the year, according to NASA.

With hundreds of meteors streaking across the night sky, the Geminids are often the best meteor shower of the year. “The reliable Geminid shower counts as one of the year’s best, peppering the nighttime sky with 50-120 meteors per hour at its peak,” noted

The meteor showers for the West Coast will start Thursday from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM and Friday 12:00 AM to 7:00 AM.
