A few months ago, Maria and I attempted (and failed) to watch the Perseid meteor shower. Tonight is the best viewing night for another meteor shower, the Geminids. We won’t be able to see them in Michigan as it is supposed to be too cloudy, but you should go try to check them out yourself.
Just go find Orion and look a bit above and a bit left. That’s where the meteors should come from. You can start viewing around 9 or so and the viewing will be the best before the moon rises at midnight. Enjoy!
