The gorgeous Snow Moon was enough of a show but driving home after sunset, my daughter Liv and I both saw a large meteor speeding through the night sky. Ursids meteor shower peaks tonight. The shower can produce up to 100 meteors an hour!

The Ursids are a yearly event beginning around Dec. 17 and ending until just after Dec. 25. They get their name from the constellation Ursa Minor, because of their position in the night sky—they appear to come shooting out from it.
