Check out the Geminids Meteor Shower on December 13 & 14.
Considered one of the brightest and best meteor showers of the year, the Geminids are individual meteors that light up the night sky. Due to a full moon, the best times for viewing are earlier in the evening, when the moon is low in the east or the wee hours of the morning. Exercise patience; plan to spend at least 30 minutes outside before seeking meteors. Make sure to face south as this is the direction of the origin. Bundle up, temperatures this week are forecast to range from - 4 degrees to -14 degrees
Due to the light pollution in Edmonton, plan ahead and view the shower from the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve at Elk Island National Park – 40 minutes East of Edmonton.
If the weather is clear and the temperature (with wind chill) is above -10 degrees Celsius, the Telus World of Science might open the RASC Observatory. Please call 780-451-3344 to confirm closer to the weekend.
