A Good Night to Stargaze

The sun goes down early this time of year, but the silver lining is that it makes it much easier to stargaze before bedtime. The Geminid Meteor Shower will be peaking overnight, with as many as 50-80 meteors per hour visible in some parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Check Meteor Showers Online for tips on where to look tonight to see the most activity.'s Spot the Station service will send you an email or text message any time the space station is likely to be visible in your area. Tonight's flyover should be visible in central Kentucky at roughly 6:35pm. The alerts are tailored to your general location, and signing up is quick and easy.
