Meteor showers in general are caused when Earth passes through the dust trail left behind by a comet. "The dust bits burn up in the Earth's atmosphere as we plow through the cloud," says Benjamin Burress, an astronomer at the Chabot Space Science Center in Oakland, Calif.

"That's so when I go back and edit the 12,000 or so frames I've taken over four hours, I can find the ones that actually have meteors in them," he says.

The Geminids get their name because they appear to emerge from the constellation Gemini. They're not actually coming from that group of Converse All-star White Leather 2 Strap Hi-top stars, but from the Earth it looks that way.

They are one of the best meteor showers of the year, usually producing upwards of 50 falling stars an hour when there's no moon. Even with the moon's light interfering this year, a good number of meteors should be visible.

He sets up a very sensitive camera on a tripod and points it in the proper direction. "Then I just set that thing to rock and roll," he says. The camera shoots continuously and every time he sees a meteor flash across the sky he notes the exact time.

The shower actually lasts for longer than just two nights, says Ron Hipschman, a scientist at the Exploratorium, a science museum in San Francisco. "We actually run through the dust trail of 3200 Phaethon from Dec. 4 to Dec. 17." The portion of the trail the Earth will be going through is densest from Dec. 12 14, so that's when the most meteors will be visible.

The shower, whose origins are mysterious, will be partly obscured by a waxing moon, but those who venture into the cold should be rewarded by seeing at least a few shooting stars, astronomers say.

"As the moon gets lower in the sky, it's going to be easier to see the meteors," she says. Standing in the shadow of a building to block the moon's light will also help. The light of the moon resets the eyes and makes it harder to see faint objects.

The asteroid is "a mysterious type of object sometimes called a "rock comet," says Burress. Astronomers don't quite understand how or why an asteroid is producing a comet like stream of dust.

The moon is in its waxing phase and will be gibbous (more than half full) and up most of the night, so its light will compete with fainter meteors.

At the time of the Civil War, the shower's peak rate was about 30 meteors an hour. "Since then, the Geminids have gradually strengthened to become the strongest annual shower, with peak rates of about 120 per hour. This is due to Jupiter's gravity nudging the stream closer to Earth," he says.
