ATACAMA DESERT, Chile - Some stargazers may have been lucky enough to witness the Geminid meteor shower earlier this week!
The Geminids are considered to be one of the best and most reliable annual meteor showers, which peaked Monday evening through dawn on Tuesday, according to NASA.

For those who missed it, meteors can still be seen during its active period — which runs through Dec. 17.
