This small meter shower can actually be seen only from the North Golisfire, which crosses the sky between five and 10 meters per hour.
On the evening of December 21, the peak of Arcades reaches the morning of December 22. The moon will be 50% complete. This, combined with the often cloudy winter nights of December, may obscure your idea of this little shower.
If you want the best view of the shower, according to NASA, wait until about 12:30 a.m. on the moon and on December 22 at ET. Then look at the sky for an hour.
The meteor shower originates from the Ursa Minor constellation, known as the Little Dipper, but the meters will appear to be spreading across the sky.
Do not look directly at the sky. Aim for almost half of the sky, according to the American Meter Society.
