The New Jersey Sky Saved The Best For Last; Enjoy The Brightest Meteor Shower Of The Year This December

The best thing about the Geminid Meteor Shower is that everyone in New Jersey can enjoy it. While we do have dark skies in some state parks, city lights limit meteor shower viewing in several areas. Fortunately, the Geminid Meteor Shower is set to be the best and brightest show of the year.

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:

Interestingly, while most meteor showers originate from comets, the Geminids are formed by asteroid fragments! The Ursids are linked to the 8P/Tuttle comet. Also in the sky over New Jersey this December is the rare Christmas Star, not seen in centuries.
