    Don't miss the best meteor shower of the year


    Did you miss out on this year's keen Orionid meteor shower or the super perigee moon? Don't fret, as a mega meteor shower this Wednesday evening could appease those craving an extraterrestrial event.

    Set your alarm for 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday December 12th, as that's when the Geminid meteor shower peaks. It could deliver dozens (or even hundreds) of visible meteors per hour until about 3 a.m. onDecember 14. Keep your eyes (and scopes) toward the constellation Gemini for the best view of the shiny shower.
