Christmas Shooting Stars above Seattle 2017

One of the most stunning events in the stargazer's calendar is the annual Geminid meteor shower!

A pre-Christmas solstice shower that's brief, but bright. The closest meteor shower to the winter holiday season, the Ursid meteor shower come hot on the heels of the Geminid meteor shower in late December

each year. The Ursids are brighter than most shooting stars.

So if you want to see an Ursid meteor you must make sure you view very close to its peak. In 2017, that's on the night of Friday, December 22 and into the early morning of December 23.

The observing conditions this year will be ideal; the new moon is just three days previous, so it will set before midnight.

Look for a great place in the park and enjoy the heavenly spectacle over Seattle.
