Annual Geminid meteor shower peaks in night sky

Stargazers got quite the show early Friday morning. 

Streaks of light are from the annual Geminid meteor shower and an even more rare event, meteors carried along by the comet Wirtanen.

This is the first time the comet's debris field crossed the Earth's orbit. NASA said it may have produced some of the meteors seen overnight.

Last night was the peak of the Geminid meteor shower. It happens every December and gets its name from the constellation Gemini.
