Those willing to fearless the chilling December cold can witness the spectacular light show simply by finding a spot from where the sky is visible clearly; no extra equipment needed.
This time lapse of the 2017 Geminid meteor shower was taken in Sierra Nevada, Granada.

"First discovered via satellite data 35 years ago, Phaethon is responsible for bringing the spectacular Geminid meteor showers to Earth's atmosphere each December".
Each year, the Earth passes through a trail of debris left by the asteroid as it orbits around the Sun.
Going into the desert, away from city lights, would provide the best viewing experience but even city dwellers will be able to see a few meteors streaking across the sky. Thursday evening the Gemini meteor shower will peak.
