The Geminids meteor shower is due to peak Thursday night until Friday morning.
This meteor shower, as the name suggests originates from the Gemini constellation. The Geminids is an unusual shower as it created from leftovers of an asteroid. Most meteor showers are the leftovers of comets.
Keep an eye towards Taurus this weekend and you might just see a few spectacular meteors. The Taurid meteor shower is taken place rightÂ now and will continue through the weekend, with the peak expected to be after midnight on the 11th and 12th. However forecasts for this evening in the North West of Ireland is calling for relatively clear skies compared to tomorrow and Monday so it might be best to go looking tonight after midnight.
