Mr. Supererk added that those interested in seeing the Geminids meteor shower phenomenon can observe it with the naked eye in all parts of the country this time without having to look through a telescope. It is recommended to choose a place where the sky is completely dark without disturbing the lights. It is recommended to sleep because the meteor shower is spread across the sky. Also, the fall rate is very high, so it is easy to monitor. This is a good opportunity to see the meteor shower visible in all directions.
The Geminids meteor shower phenomenon or twin stars meteor shower usually occurs between December 4-20 every year. Binary stars have a diffuse center around them. This year, astronomers predict a maximum shower of 150 meteors per hour on the night of December 14, 2022. That night, the binary constellation will appear on the eastern horizon at about 8:00 p.m., and will be visible until about 11:00 p.m., after which time the meteor shower will still be visible. But there will be moonlight on the sixth day of the waning moon
The Geminid meteor shower is caused by Earth moving through a stream of rock and dust left behind by the asteroid 3200 Phaethon as it passes through the inner solar system. Earth’s gravity pulls dust and rock into the atmosphere as the world travels that way. A flash of light is sometimes called a large fireball called a fireball.
