December 12, 2013: The largest meteor shower of the year -- the spectacular annual Geminid meteor shower -- kicks into high gear Thursday night and people around the world will be able to enjoy it at least through Monday, according to NASA.
Be sure to send your photos and time-lapse videos to iReport here! We'll share the best on CNN.
The meteors can be viewed well starting at 11 p.m., but the best viewing will come an hour before dawn, NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told CNN. For optimal viewing, Cooke says you should use a telescope or binoculars. He recommends lying flat on your back in a sleeping bag so you can take in as much of the sky as possible.
