Meteor Shower Lights up Tucson Sky

Posted By on Wed, Dec 11, 2013 at 9:30 AM

Last night there was a reverberating boom over the Old Pueblo and a large meteor shower that lit up the night sky.

The meteor shower took place around 7:11 p.m.

NASA is referring to it as the 900-pound gorilla of meteor showers.

NASA says this is just the beginning.

People around the world can enjoy what bedazzled Arizonans until at least Monday, NASA said. The Geminid meteor shower this year will be "rich in fire balls."

They can be viewed best from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. ET.
