Just in time for the holiday season are two spectacular light shows: Geminid and Ursids meteor showers.
Though these shows come sans waving Santas and spinning candy canes, they're sure to wow spectators.
The Geminid meteor shower is set to begin the second week of December and continue through Dec. 16 — with peak viewing the night of Dec. 13 and morning of Dec. 14. The show was washed out last year due to the supermoon.
More than 100 meteors can zoom across the sky an hour during Geminid's peak time (2 in the morning). The show can be viewed without a telescope, though a device would enhance the view.
The Ursids meteor shower will happen Dec. 22 into Dec. 23. This one isn't as easy to see as Geminid.
"The Ursids are not noted for fireballs, like the Geminids," NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke said. "You will need a dark sky to see them."
Since both meteor shows are best viewed without artificial light, it might be best to turn off those flashing reindeer and light-up Santa displays in your yard (temporarily of course).
