According to the Hong Kong Observatory, the Geminid Meteor Shower – said to be the brightest and most spectacular meteor shower of the year – is expected to rise in the northeast at about 7.30 pm on December 13, but will be the most radiant at about 2am to 3am on December 14.

Visible to the naked eye, the meteor shower has been estimated that during the peak, the Zenithal Hourly Rate (the number of meteors you would see in an hour) of the meteor shower can reach up to 150, marking it as the highest among all meteor showers in 2020.

While it is common practice to head into the countryside and away from the city’s light pollution for stargazing, the Hong Kong Space Museum will also be broadcasting a live stream of the Geminid Meteor Shower from 8pm to 10pm on December 13 through its YouTube channel for those who would like to enjoy the wonders of the cosmos from home. Click here to find out more about the Geminid Meteor Shower.
