How to spot ‘the best meteor shower in 2011′ this Tuesday and Wednesday night
The yearly light show known as the Geminids meteor shower peaks on Tuesday and Wednesday night. NASA has called it “the best annual meteor shower,” and while a gibbous (not quite full, but still bright) Moon won’t make for ideal viewing conditions, sky watchers can spot as many as 40 streaks of light per hour
