It's all part of the annual Geminids meteor shower, which is usually a great sight. It peaks tonight (December 13th), so grab a chair and a coat and watch the show anytime from 10pm until dawn. In dark sky areas you may see up to 120 meteors per hour. And since it's a new moon you should be able to see more.

Great to hear this is expected and not the end of the world as we know it.
This makes me feel fine. :)

here in Houston said this morning that Meteor shower will be visible tonight from early evening up until 11pm or 1am. Best to view outside inner city...earlier this year i walked outside one night about 9pm just in time to see a HUGE one go right over my house. The thing left a huge line of smoke behind it as far as i could see in both directions. It had to be very close to the ground as the thing looked to be massive and so was the trail it left. It also seemed to move pretty slow for something like a meteor. Oddly enough there was absolutely nothing in the news about it at all before or after.... I checked the Youtube for a week after it happened hoping somebody had it on film and nothing !

I knew this was another of your posts before I even clicked on it, Bob.
shut up cheesehead.. if you don't like it don't click on it. Who are you to judge?
Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry
And I would dearly like to know
How all this squander of earthly plunder
will leave us anything to show
that spoke of the destruction of earth from meteors.. some possibly drawn towards us from a new found star that they call "Nemesis" which is on an orbit with the sun.. something like that.. Of course it's supposed to not happen for a very long time.
They mentioned that we'd see the showers start relatively small and increase over a long period with the full storm predicting over a billion meteors headed our way.
Not the same thing I'm sure but damn what timing lol
