Incoming magic, Toronto! Known for its bold, bright streaks, the Geminids meteor shower will peak on Wednesday evening.

Described as “one of the best and most reliable annual meteor showers,” by NASA, this spectacular display is active until December 24th, 2023 – but is predicted to peak on the 14th.

According to EarthSky, the meteors are “plentiful” and can be seen in both hemispheres – however, it favours the Northern sky.

For the best view, point your eye to the Gemini constellation and wait until it’s at its highest point. This will happen around 2 am local time and – on the big day will not be obstructed by the light of the moon.

“In 2023, a young waxing crescent moon will not interfere with viewing the meteor shower.” EarthSky writes.

With partly cloudy & mainly clear skies in the forecast for Toronto tonight, it could be a chance to catch the showers. So bundle up, a lot, and don’t forget to make a wish!

Here are the best spots to watch the Geminids meteor shower in Toronto:


If you’re looking for that real dark sky experience ,head over to the sprawling green space at Sunnybrook Park in North York.

With trees that line every pathway, grass as far as the eye can see, and benches aplenty, Sunnybrook is the ultimate spot for couples, friends, or just for one to enjoy their own company.

Where: 1132 Leslie Street


This beach is usually pretty quiet in the evenings especially during the cold weather, so it could the perfect spot to catch the show. Bring a blanket, some snacks, and enjoy the views of the skyline while you’re there.

Where: 1 Cherry Street


Located in the Port Lands, this unique urban nature park is completely removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Settle in by the shoreline and take in a sunset, a sunrise, or in tonight’s case, an incredible meteor shower.

Where: 1 Leslie Street


If you’re over in the west end, be sure to check out this awesome gem.

We suggest hitting that during the day and extending your stay to the evening for the meteor shower.

Where: 100 Humber Bay Park Road


The beautiful boardwalk makes this location worth the trip. Take an evening walk and look up to enjoy the Perseids Meteor Shower from here. Its west-end waterfront location is great for the occasion.

Where: 1095 Lakeshore Boulevard West

Wherever you are tonight, around 2 am, be sure to look up!
