(AP) —Night-time sky-watchers willing to brave the cold can look forward to a spectacular display of shooting stars this week.

The Geminid meteor shower, which returns every December, is predicted to be one of the most dazzling ever.

An almost absent moon will ensure that the meteors, widely regarded as the most impressive of the year, stand out brightly as they streak across the sky.

The best time to see the Geminids will be between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.
