In 2023, the new moon will be on December 12th, the closest moon phase. Consequently, the peak of the Geminid meteor shower in 2023 will be accompanied by a gloomy sky.

Forecasted meteor showers at peak hours, in perfect weather: You have a 120 percent chance of seeing 120 Geminid meteors every hour in a moonless night sky.
