Some of 2021's early meteor showers will be washed out by the Full Moon, but things pick up in April.
The first total lunar eclipse since 2019 will look best from eastern Asia, Japan, Australia, and western North America.
The Sun will appear as a ring of light around the Moon in parts of Russia and Canada, with a less dramatic show from the northeastern United States and Europe.
A waxing crescent moon will leave the sky mostly dark for this shower, which peaks on August 12–13 and produces bright, fast meteors.
Jupiter's cloud bands will be visible through a telescope, and its four moons can be seen with binoculars at its closest point to Earth.
Despite a nearly Full Moon, this should be the best meteor shower of the year. The Geminids can be seen from early evening and peak on December 14.
