One Of The Biggest Meteor Showers Of The Year Will Be Visible In Idaho In December

Attention, all stargazing Idahoans! One of the most highly anticipated meteor showers of the year is coming up in just a few weeks and you’ll want to be sure to catch it. The Geminid meteor shower takes place every year in December, and it’s often regarded as one of the year’s best astronomical events. Although a nearly full moon is expected to slightly impact visibility for the meteor shower this year, you’ll still be able to get a great view of some falling meteors here in Idaho.
