Stargazers are in for a treat tonight as the annual Geminid meteor shower reaches its peak.

While the chilly mid-December weather may keep some budding astronomers tucked safely inside by the fire, those who venture out to catch the celestial show can see up to 120 meteors per hour, according to NBC. Although the brightness of the nearly full moon may limit some viewers' numbers, watching during the Magic Hour' will help ensure that you get the most out of the experience.

"There is a 'magic hour' of good visibility just before dawn on Saturday the 14th," said Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office, according to NASA Science News. "The moon sets around 4 AM. The dark time between 4 AM and sunrise is a great time for meteor watching."

However, for those who would rather spend the night tucked up in bed under the covers, NASA and the Slooh Community Observatory will be bringing the event right to your computer via live streams and commentary.

NASA will host a web chat and with live images of the sky over the Marshall Space Flight Center starting at 11 p.m. ET and running until 3 a.m. ET, which can be accessed by clicking here.

Slooh Community Observatory will broadcast a live stream with commentary from the Canary Islands from 5:30 p.m. ET to 1 a.m. ET. Despite being hindered by cloudy weather earlier in the day, the Slooh live feed has cleared up and is now showing a clear sky.
