Ridgewood NJ, the Geminid meteor shower ,a favorite among the annual meteor showers is expected to peak in 2021 on the night of Monday, December 13 into Tuesday, December 14. The Geminids are typically a reliable shower for those who watch around 2 a.m. local time (the time on your clock no matter where you are on the globe) from a dark-sky location. But, this year, a waxing gibbous moon will be above the horizon during peak time for viewing. It’ll set shortly afterward. So the best time to watch for Geminid meteors in 2021 is likely after moonset on the mooning of Tuesday, December 14th  from around 3 a.m. to dawn.
