This year was host to several heavenly treats, one of which was the rare total solar eclipse. To keep them treats going, there isn't a better way to say goodbye to 2017 than by witnessing one of the most beautiful meteor showers - the Geminids. The Geminids, active from December 4 to December 17, are usually the most awaited meteor shower of the year, owing to the high rate of visible meteors per hour. This year, the shower is expected to peak in Indian skies at dawn on Thursday, December 14, with most of the previous night also witnessing several shooting stars.
