Don't Miss Tonight's Winter Solstice Display: A Full Moon And A Meteor Shower

The Ursid meteor shower has already begun, starting on December 17 and lasting until December 24. The meteor shower will peak between December 22 and 23 with up to 10 meteors per hour entering Earth's atmosphere. While the peak will occur a day after the winter solstice, you can still easily see the meteor shower tonight, but there may be fewer visible meteors.

The moon will appear to be a full moon tonight, however, the technical full moon of December isn't until Saturday, December 22. The Full Cold Moon, named after the full moon marking the beginning of the coldest part of the year, will add to the overall experience tonight.
