Night of the Meteorites!

For those interested in astronomy and cool space phenomena, there’s a treat coming up tomorrow night: one of the best meteor showers of the year will have its peak on December 13th (h/t Americablog).  The Geminid meteor shower will be best seen from Central Asia to Alaska, but North America should still get a pretty good show.

As long as it doesn’t bring with it a cheesy 80s-style apocalypse, I’ll be excited to see if I can see anything.

(And, yes, I know the difference between a meteorite and a comet.  Don’t ruin my joke.)
