This Thursday and Friday, August 11 and 12, is one of the best annual meteor showers you and your family or friends can watch: the Perseids. And some experts are even predicting that there might be a meteor “outburst” this year—where the number of shooting stars increases beyond the usual rates.

For the first time in a decade, five planets are visible with the naked eye at the same time. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be together in the pre-dawn sky starting Wednesday, January 20, 2016.
The peak of the Geminid meteor shower occurs this weekend on the nights of December 13 and 14. The Geminids are one of the most consistent meteor showers year after year. This year there will be no bright moon to compete with so the show should be particularly good.
