If you want to see the skies light up like Christmas trees, then this is your weekend. The Geminid Meteor Shower will happen Dec 13 and 14th, and according to NASA, this is  'when Earth passes through a massive trail of dusty debris shed by a weird, rocky object named 3200 Phaethon. The dust and grit burn up when they run into Earth’s atmosphere in a flurry of shooting stars'.

I'm not an astrologist, but from what I'm reading, the best time to watch will be around 2:00 am when the meteors will be about 100 per hour. Even though that is peak time, you still should be able to watch the heavenly display as soon as it gets dark. Check out NASA's video from last year's Geminid Meteor Shower below.
