Geminids

Tonight's the night. From Space.com:
This week brings us what usually is considered to be the most satisfying of all the annual meteor displays, even surpassing the famous Perseids of August: the December Geminid Meteor Shower.

But as was the case with last month’s Leonid Meteors, prospective sky watchers should be aware that once again they will be facing a major obstacle in their attempt to observe this year’s Geminid performance, namely, the Moon.
They could be worth staying up a little late or getting up a little early for though.

Let's see, partly cloudy is bad but a 96% full moon that rises at 3:30 in the afternoon and doesn't set until 5:50 AM will make it damned near impossible.

But, I'll be looking.

It looks to be a somewhat uneventful shower.
