This week we get a good show as the Geminid shower peaks Wednesday and Thursday.

But its enormous debris cloud will create the annual event called the Geminid meteor shower, named for the apparent center of the shower in the constellation Gemini. Having an asteroid as the foundation of a meteor shower provides an excellent source of dust grains that will burn up as they dive into the Earth's atmosphere, according to NASA.

Stargazers took to the internet to share photos of what was the greatest meteor shower of the year and Newsweek has picked out a few highlights.

The Geminids can be seen all around the world.

Geminid meteors travel fairly slowly, at around 22 miles (35 km) per second.

It will come as close as 10.3 millions of km/6.4 million miles to Earth, the closest encounter since the asteroid was discovered in 1983.
