Submission Best Meteor Shower This Year

LittleRedStar writes: This Wednesday night and Thursday morning is the peak of the Geminid meteor shower. This is the typically the best meteor show of the year with up to 100 meteors per hour.

Since the perseid meteor shower was washed out from the moon and the Leonids were a bust this should be the best for 2006.
