What to do on a Friday night? Gemenid meteor show still strong tonight Dec. 14 -15

Although it peaked on Thursday night, you will still have many opportunites to see several shooting stars tonight, Friday, Dec. 14, into Saturday.

The Geminid meteor shower is one of the best star shows of the year.  Icon veiwers can really take advantage of this tonight.
