When I was a kid, I loved looking up at the night sky and just stargaze. It didn't matter if there was a meteor shower or not, it's just so peaceful and relaxing to do. I even have that night sky app on my phone, so I can look at what each thing is I'm viewing.

But meteor showers are phenomenal. They're such a great thing to witness live and in person, and especially with your family members.

If you're a night owl, and will be up very late tonight, make sure to look up into the night sky across Western New York.

According to Mike Doyle of WIVB Weather, the Geminid Meteor Shower will be visible for us here in Western New York.

The best viewing will be just after 2 am tonight, so maybe go to bed early and set those alarms!

It's always best when you're away from city lights too. No lights to dim lighting, and make sure to let your eyes adjust to the night sky as well. That way, you'll have the best viewing experience.

We don't get too many chances with this either, so don't miss this opportunity. I know it's at such a late time, but the fact we won't have much cloud cover, will make it worth it.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics.
