Geminid meteor streaks are seen above the Judean desert near the Israeli Kibbutz of Ein Gedi early December 14, 2012. 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. (AFP Photo)
