'The King of Meteor Showers'

The Geminid Meteor Shower stands out as one of the best of the year and is sometimes referred to as "the King of Meteor Showers," according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Dave Samuhel. As many as 100 to 150 shooting stars will streak across the night sky every hour.

The Geminid Meteor Shower does not only produce a plethora of shooting stars but is also known to produce some unusual colors as they streak across the star-studded sky.

Most of the meteors will appear white or yellow, but according to Slooh, a small number may appear red, blue or even purple.

The color of light that the meteors produce depends on their chemical composition. Different chemicals in the meteors produce different colors as they burn up while entering the Earth's atmosphere.

This Sunday/Monday.

Good heads up. I would like to see it, but all the christmas lighting causes a lot of light pollution. It gets worse and worse every year. Last time I saw the milky way was three years ago, in Clear Lake, CA. :)
