Watch Geminid meteor live


The Geminid meteor showers began with remnants of asteroids shooting across the night sky leaving behind tails of plumes. The 2021 showers are currently active until December 17 and will peak on the night of December 14 after beginning the night before.

According to Nasa, the Geminids are caused by debris from a celestial object known as 3200 Phaethon, whose origin is the subject of some debate. While some astronomers consider it to be from an extinct comet, others argue that it has to be an asteroid because of its orbit and its similarity to the main-belt asteroid Pallas.
