Geminids 2019: NASA says ‘go out’ for the Geminid meteor shower TONIGHT 1

Unfortunately, this year’s viewing will be hindered by the presence of a bright Waning Gibbous Moon.

Tonight, the Moon will be about 92 percent illuminated, which threatens to wash out the night skies.

But William Bryan from MSFC Meteoroid Environment Office believes you should still “go outside and see the Geminids” tonight.

The meteor expert predicts at least 30 meteors an hour will still crisscross the skies.
