The largest meteor shower of the year is held this month, giving us an incredible view of the night sky. RT has all the information you need to enjoy the heavenly show.
Gemini are an annual meteor shower, which takes place in December, when Earth passes through a mass of dusty debris that burns in our atmosphere.
This leads to a spectacular light show, which looks as if hundreds of shooters fly through the sky. Jaminids contain a larger mass than any other meteor shower and can include colors like red, blue and yellow.
The dust removal comes from a 3200 pataton, a strange rocky object called an asteroid, but which may have disappeared from a comet – scientists are not sure. Meteorists tend to come from comets, making the ghimpines even more unique.
So how can you watch this amazing show?
Guilds begin on December 4 and run on December 13, 14 or 15, depending on the time zone you're watching.
NASA recommends going out after 10:30 am, or when the moon is set, and finding the darkest possible place to watch. Those living in rural areas will be able to see the show more clearly than those in the cities, so residents wishing to capture the event should consider traveling outside the city.
After allowing your eyes to adapt for about 30 minutes, the Geinid meteors will begin to appear over the heads in the clusters, with gaps between each visual outburst.
Until 2:00 in the morning, meteorites will increase to about 100 per hour in darker areas, with suburban people expected to see 30-40 an hour, and people in cities see even less.

Gemini are baptized on the star constellation "Gemini". This is the point in the sky, from where the meteors come, known as the radiant. Meteors, however, do not actually come from here and will be visible throughout the sky, NASA explains.
