Wednesday and Thursday night, the universe will put on a light show that you don't want to miss - it is the annual Geminid meteor shower. It should be an excellent meteor shower as the Geminids are usually prolific, bright and slow-moving, and this year there won't be a bright moon to obscure a lot of them.
"Even if you're facing west, if you see a meteor, and if it's a Geminid meteor, you'll see it will trace all the way back from east-northeast".
When leftover objects of an asteroid floating in the space comes close to the Sun, it collides with the earth's atmosphere, disintegrating to create fiery and colourful streaks in the sky, according to NASA.
The meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, hence the name of the shower. But in this case, the shower will spring from material that's already broken off of an asteroid called 3200 Phaethon. Once the Earth passes the debris field, the rocks and dust burn which becomes what most people know as shooting stars.

You may have already seen some shooting stars across the sky the past few nights. The best views will be in the Northern Hemisphere.
The best time to look for the Geminids is between sunset and sunrise, when the night sky is at its darkest. Most likely, the meteors will be the most visible between midnight and 4 AM on the 14th.
The Virtual Telescope said: "To make this meteor shower of particular fashion and very special this year is a nice coincidence".
And if it's cloudy where you are, NASA will broadcast the Geminid shower live via Ustream starting at sunset December 13 from the Automated Lunar and Meteor Observatory at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
