Camelopardalids - 05/22/14
There's a new meteor shower in town, folks! Place a post-it note on the fridge to remind you about this amazing opportunity Friday night into Saturday morning. A new meteor shower is set to stream across the sky and it has scientists buzzing.
The new shower is associated with Comet209/LINEAR, which was discovered in 2004. The earth will pass through the debris field from the comet, which could result in a meteor light show. In fact, scientists are saying this could be the best meteor shower of the year.
Where to look: The best time will be between 1-3am looking north.
