Geminid meteor shower live video, schedule: Missed Thursday's stellar show? It's not finished yet

The Geminid meteor shower lit up the skies Thursday night, but if you missed it, you may have another shot to catch a glimpse.

Although it's past its peak, the Geminid meteor shower continues Friday night. You could still see plenty of meteors and we should see more patches of clear skies tonight.

These meteors originate near the Gemini Twins constellation and are known annually for their "slow, bright, graceful meteors and fireballs."

Some of these magnificent meteors, which NBC says are usually more impressive than the famous Perseid meteors, glow yellow and travel jagged or divided.

What makes this year's Geminid show more impressive than others, is the fact that the moon will be barely visible, increasing the chances of seeing the meteors in action.

The Gemini constellation can be seen rising in the sky just after dark in the east or northeast horizon, according to the article.

NASA provided a live video stream to view the showers. It's not confirmed if it will continue the stream Friday.
