The flux of daily random meteors peaks at local sunrise, but the best
time for shower meteors depends upon a different geometry. In the case
of the Geminid shower underway now, the best path is generally
north-south at about 10 PM local time. Go to this page
http://www.qsl.net/w8wn/hscw/access.html and download the small DOS
utility program called TMSP ("The Meteor Scatter Predictor"). It will
give you some useful guidance on peak times and directions for shower
