Catch 2 falling stars!
Every December, the Earth’s rotation puts it in the path of debris from the asteroid 3200 Phaethon. When that happens, the dust and grit burns up upon contact with the Earth’s atmosphere, creating the most biggest and most vivid annual meteor shower: The Geminids.
With the possible cloud cover and bright full moon, it will be hard to see tonight but if you get lucky and it is clear at 6:30 am, that will be the peak. Meteor showers always have some leftover dust though so keep watching the sky for the next few days.
Each day from December 12 – 24, Yarmouth Recreation will share an activity through our website, Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. Join in on your favorite channel. For every comment about the activity, we will put your name in a draw for a family fun prize pack valued at $100. If you share/tag us in an image of you and your family doing an activity, you will get 5 prize entries that day! Enter as often as you wish and for as many days as you can!
