Geminid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend

It's that time of the year again. No, I'm not taking about Christmas, I'm talking about meteors.
Each December, Earth passes through the cloud of debris produced by rock comet 3200 Phaethon, resulting in arguably the best meteor shower of the year — the Geminid shower.
This year's shower will peak Saturday night into Sunday morning and NASA says as many as 100 to 120 meteors will fall per hour.
