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

Don’t let the cold winter weather keep you indoors all season long. Get out there this week to see one of the most stunning natural shows that our solar system has to offer: the 2019 Geminid Meteor Shower.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

It’s going to be very cold that night, so be sure to bundle up, bring a warm beverage, and set up camp in a lounge chair so you don’t get a stiff neck from looking up for hours.

The best place in the whole state to view this or any other celestial event is Merritt Reservoir, a dark-sky location that draws thousands of stargazers a year. You should be able to see at least some meteors from anywhere in the state, though.

Happy meteor spotting!
