Geminid Meteor Shower

The Geminid Meteor Shower peaks tonight. Just look East when the sky is dark. Mars is in Gemini, so the constellation is easy to find. The meteors will seem to radiate from that constellation (hence the name). Up to 120 meteors an hour will be visible, though the best rates will probably not happen until after midnight. The Geminids are noted for producing a lot of bright meteors and fireballs.
