On the nights of December 12 and 13, you can fully enjoy the Geminid Meteor Shower, an event that will be broadcast live from the Teide Observatory (Tenerife) and from the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (La Palma) through the sky-live.tv channel.

The broadcast will be carried out in collaboration with the Energy Efficiency Laboratories (EELabs) project, the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) and the SODEPAL Astronomical Dissemination Program and the Cabildo de La Palma Innovation Service.

Throughout the last decade, the Geminids have always said goodbye to the year exceeding 100 meteors per hour (ZHR, zenith hourly rates) and placing first in the annual ranking of meteor showers, along with the Perseids and the Quadrantids.

As every year, the Geminids will show their peak of activity in mid-December. This year, the Geminid activity will occur between December 4-17. The maximum is expected at 00.50 UT on December 14. The nights from 12 to 13 and from 13 to 14 December will be the best moments for observing the meteor shower.
