The Geminid meteor shower will peak tonight, with best viewing between 10PM and 2AM. There is also a possibility of a new and as yet unnamed meteor display appearing at the same time.

NASA live streaming

If it's cloudy where you are (like in Florida where I am) you can watch it online from a NASA webcam at Huntsville, AL. They will also have NASA astronomers on hand for a live chat session.

I saw some of the fainter ones last night/this morning. It was a wee bit cold for me to be sitting outside looking at the stars.
