The Geminid meteor shower is set to let up to sky tonight and in the early hours of tomorrow morning. Light from the moon makes it harder to see some fainter meteors, so it's best to wait until it sets to head outside.

A similar object, called 2005 UD that shares a lot of similarities with Phaethon leads some to believe the two objects were once part of a larger rock that split apart or was broken after colliding with another asteroid.
