Event Description

In 2017, the Geminid meteor shower is expected to peak on the night of December 13 and early morning hours of December 14. I will be out on Dec.13 & 14 The peak night will be on the 13 but on the night of the 14th members from the Camrose Astronomy Club are coming out with their telescopes and there still should be plenty of meteors.

You are welcome to come out and join us on the 13 or 14 from 6:00pm to 1:00am

This event is weather permitting, the long range forecast doesn't look too good https://www.yr.no/.../canada/alberta/new%20norway/long.html

 You can check the conditions 48 hours in advance @ http://www.cleardarksky.com/c/CmrsABkey.html

It's the astronomer's forecast. At a glance, it shows when it will be cloudy or clear for up to the next two days. It's a prediction of when Camrose, AB, will have good weather for astronomical observing.

The peak of the Geminids, which is considered to be one of the most prolific meteor showers of the year, is after dark on December 14.

Waning Crescent Moon will make viewing conditions good for the shooting stars.
