Hopefully it's not cloudy tonight...because I wanna see this!

The biggest meteor shower of the year peaks tonight.

it's the Geminid meteor shower to be exact. It's expected to be the best of the year. 

You can see the show between 7:30 p.m. tonight and dawn local time, but the best time is between midnight and 4 a.m. 

According to the Washington Post, It peaks Wednesday, but it will still be possible to see some Thursday or even Friday.

Meteors could be shooting across the sky at a rate of 120 per hour Thursday night, according to the International Meteor Organization.

How do you see the Geminids? Go outside and look up! If you’re in a bright location like a city or suburb, you may want to hit the road and drive away from the city lights. Even in the city, though, you should still be able to see a few of the brightest meteors.

Look up!
