Watch Live: The Geminid Meteor Shower Streaks Across the Sky

Dec 13, 2016

One of the year's biggest meteor showers will streak across the sky starting Tuesday night, according to NASA.

The Geminid meteor shower will peak on the night of Dec. 13 and in the early morning hours of Dec. 14.

This year, however, a super moon that will appear at the same time as the meteor shower may obstruct views of stars showering down because of its bright light, NASA said while introducing a Reddit AMA on the meteor shower.

"The light from the full moon will unfortunately wash out a lot of the dimmer meteors," an expert form NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office wrote.
