The Ursids are active between about December 17th and the 26th but the peak is on the 22nd and 23rd of that month. As many as 10 meteors per hour can be seen but there have been occasional reported bursts of 100 per hour being seen.

Please use a star atlas or software, such as the freeware Stellarium, to determine the direction in the sky from which the meteors originate.
