Annual Geminid Meteor Shower

VALLEY OF FIRE STATE PARK, NV - DECEMBER 14: A Geminid meteor streaks above one of the peaks of the Seven Sisters rock formation early December 14, 2010 in the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. The meteor display, known as the Geminid meteor shower because it appears to radiate from the constellation Gemini, is thought to be the result of debris cast off from an asteroid-like object called 3200 Phaethon. The shower is visible every December. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
