See the Geminids Meteor Shower This Weekend
The Geminids are one of the best meteor showers. It comes around every December. The peak this year is around the 13th or 14th of December. Go here for everything you always wanted to know about the Geminids.
It will be cold here in Minnesota...duh...so dress warm. Once you think you have all your warmest clothing on, put on some more. Then get in a sleeping bag and relax in your lawn chair around 8pm. Recliners work best. Face easterly and kickback.
Don't let the picture of telescopes fool you. Using a telescope or binoculars for meteor showers is pointless and ineffective.
