If you're looking for a fantastic light show December 13-14, all you need to do is look up. The annual Geminid meteor shower is one of the most spectacular meteor showers of the year. This year is expected to be the best meteor shower ever. Most meteor showers are caused by comets. The Geminids are associated with an asteroid called the 3200 Phaethon. Having an asteroid as the foundation of a meteor shower provides an excellent source of dust grains that will burn up as they dive into the Earth's atmosphere. The meteor shower was named after the constellation Gemini because many of the meteors appear to come from that constellation.
