The Geminids Meteor Shower, which peaks during mid-December each year, is considered to be one of the best annual meteor showers. Beginning in early December, the “shower in the heavens” grows in intensity and reaches its zenith on the night of December 13 and continues overnight into the early morning hours. The best part, this natural phenomenon can be seen with the naked eye so there’s no need for binoculars or a telescope. Stargazers can catch up to 120 meteors per hour, and the dark sky of a new moon will make this year’s show even more brilliant.
Stargazing will be made easy this December during the Geminids Meteor Shower at Pebble Beach Resorts in California. Since the dark and open sky is the most important thing for watching meteors, the Monterey Peninsula’s pure night sky is perfect for that, as it’s free of streetlights and other distractions. Stars shine their brightest over the majestic Monterey pines and some of the most breathtaking coastline in the world.
From the terrace patio of The Inn at Spanish Bay at the iconic Pebble Beach Resorts, guests can admire the night sky and get lost in the sounds of the resort’s famed bagpiper as he puts the golf course to sleep in Scottish tradition. They can relax by a warm fire pit with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails as they point out their favorite constellations that are ever so clear.
Post-gaze, guests can retreat to their rooms at The Inn and cozy up by a warm fireplace or continue enjoying the peaceful starry night from the comfort of their private patio or balcony. Rates start at $960 per night.
