Geminid Meteor Shower

The Geminids is the king of the meteor showers. It is considered by many to be the best shower in the skies, producing up to 120 multicolored meteors per hour at its peak (depending on your location). It is produced by debris left behind by an asteroid known as 3200 Phaethon, which was discovered in 1982.
