The outer-space website says that the meteors will be cutting stripes of light en-masse this year, with more than 1 meteor appearing per minute and up to 100 meteors passing per hour.

Geminid 2018 meteor shower will adorn the skies of Canada on December 13. And with the Moon showing only a slim crescent phase this week, conditions could hardly be better for a sneak peek at what is arguably the best annual meteor shower.

According to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, the shower will peak between December 13 and 14. At its peak in the sky you will see about 15 meteors per hour, according to Ukrainian news.

We will remind, on the night of October 22, the Terrans were able to observe peak activity of a Meteor shower orionids, and in early October, the Draconids meteor shower.

The Geminids result from the mysterious asteroid 3200 Phaethon, which, thanks to periodic heating from the Sun, has left a trail of material in its orbit.

The Geminids are one of the three most prolific meteor showers of the year, along with the Quadrantids in January and the Perseids in August.

Canadians won't need any special equipment or any skill to view the meteor shower, just a set of eyes, a comfy blanket and patience. People planning to catch the scene are advised to go away from city lights as dark sies will give a clearer picture.

Once you've found a good viewing spot, lie down on the ground and look up in the direction of the radiant.

The best locations are mountains with an altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level or higher, the museum said.
