Tonight is the peak of the Ursid Meteor Shower

The Ursids is a low intensity meteor shower that peaks around the winter solstice and it generally goes by unnoticed due its occurrence during the holiday season. The hourly rate of visible meteors is low, especially compared to that of the Geminid shower, which peaked generally close the same time period, the week before.

The Ursid (URS) meteor activity begins annually around December 17 and runs for over a week, until the 25th or 26th. This meteor shower is named for its radiant point, which is located near the star Beta Ursae Minoris (Kochab) in the constellation Ursa Minor.

The parent of the Ursid meteor show is comet 8P/Tuttle.

Depending on where you live, if live in light pollution free area, you are willing to brave the frigid temperature and, by a stroke luck, you get a break in the winter storms that are occurring around the United States and Canada, then take a look. The peak of the Urids 2022 will occur during a near new phase of the Moon.

Watch for Ursid meteors on December 22 and 23, before dawn.
