The Ursids peak tonight, offering the last meteor shower of 2023 tonight

The annual December meteor shower, the Ursids, peaks on Saturday (Dec. 23), offering skywatchers willing to brave the cold the chance to see meteors in the form of bright streaks of light and the occasional ball. in the fire.

The Ursids is a relatively low-key meteor shower active between December 17 and December 26, meaning skywatchers will be able to see meteors from it until Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The Ursids got its name due to the fact that most of its meteors seem to flow from the constellation Ursa Minor, with astronomers calling this point of high activity bright in this meteor shower.
