The 2011 Geminid Meteor Shower – NASA Science.

The Geminids are usually one of the nicer meteor showers, but the cold of December makes them rather less popular than the famous Perseids.This year, a bright waning moon adds interference.

If you’re wiling to brave the cold and the Moon, and you have an iOS device, you can help NASA and other planetary scientists. Download the Meteor Counter app from the app store, and become a citizen scientist for the night.

More information on the app (including screen shots and instructions) are available at http://meteorcounter.com/
