Keep your eye to the sky the next couple nights as you might see some shooting stars.

The Geminid Meteor Shower will peak early Wednesday and Thursday around 2 a.m. but sometimes you can see them a little earlier.

It's often considered the best of the year because the meteors are bright. There could be as many as 120 meteors an hour in the darkest spots away from city lights.

The waning crescent moon in the late night sky won't interfere with viewing very much.

Give yourself at least 20-30 minutes for your eyes to adjust outside, and you might be in for a treat after being out for another 30 minutes. Make sure you dress warmly as well.

The Geminids stem from the constellation Gemini and the meteors will fly in all parts of the sky.
