Geminids Tonight

The peak of the Geminid meteor shower will be tonight, December 13/14. According to NASA’s Fluxtimator, it promises to be a very good show, peaking at a rate of 66.7 meteors per hour in countryside viewing conditions at 12:16 AM CST. Even as early as 9 PM, which is as early as the Fluxtimator will predict, there should be 46.8 meteors per hour. The only problem around here is the weather, which doesn't look very promising.
