Get your cell phones out, NASA is kicking off a global selfie event for Earth Day.

Here's how it works: You snap a photo of yourself then post it on one of five social media websites, including Twitter, using the hashtag "globalselfie." NASA will then use those photos to create a mosaic image of earth.

You can also post your photos on Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Flickr.
