When it comes to meteor showers, the calendar year always seems to save the best for last. We're referring to the Geminid meteor shower, one of the sure fire bets for dependable meteor showers.

Get Ready! Here's What You Can Expect From This Week's Geminids Meteor Shower
SAMANTHA ROLFE, THE CONVERSATION , 12 DEC 2018

The Geminids meteor shower peaks on the mornings of December 13 and 14, 2018 – but if you look up any time there's a clear night sky up until December 17, you might just catch a glimpse of a Geminid meteor.

*sigh* Socked in once again.

On my bucket list is this: visit a warm Caribbean island with dark skies during mid December. And bring a comfortable chair.
