One of the most beautiful meteor showers this year can be observed in Vietnam next Tuesday, according to Nguyen Duc Phuong of the Vietnam Association of Astronomy Cosmography.

 

Beginning to scatter across the world on December 7, the Geminids shower will last until December 17, but it will peak between December 14 night and early morning on December 15, Phuoc said.

 

At its peak, the shower can bring up to 120 meteors per hour, he said, adding that it can be observed from anywhere in the world.

 

In Vietnam, people can see it at approximately between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 5 a.m. the next day, and its peak is expected at about 2 a.m. Wednesday, Phuong said.
