Ursids Meteor Shower 2019: Watch It Peak in Night Skies

Bits and pieces of meteor showers are visible for a certain period of time, but they really peak visibly from dusk to dawn on a given few days.

All year long as Earth revolves around the sun, it passes through streams of cosmic debris. The resulting meteor showers can light up night skies from dusk to dawn, and if you’re lucky you might be able to catch a glimpse.

The next shower you might be able to see is the Ursids. Active from Dec. 17 to Dec. 26, the show peaks around Sunday night into Monday morning, or Dec. 22-23.
