Geminids Meteor Shower
From Sky and Telescope:
The Geminids, an impressive annual meteor shower sparked by dust and debris shed from a small asteroid, peaks this weekend.
Geminids can appear anywhere in the sky, so the best direction to watch is wherever your sky is darkest, probably straight up. Small particles create tiny, quick streaks. Occasional brighter ones might sail across the heavens for several seconds and may leave a brief train of glowing smoke.
