Geminids 2019 UK: How to watch the Geminids meteor shower from the UK this weekend


How to see the Geminid meteor shower in the UK?

Last year, the Geminids peaked with around 120 shooting stars zipping across the night skies.

This year, the Royal Observatory Greenwich expects lesser rates of about 88 meteors an hour during the peak.

But the shower will be just as spectacular, with meteors dashing across the skies at speeds of more than 156,000mph.

There are, however, some obstacles that will make it hard to spot some of the Geminids.
