A new meteor shower called May Camelopardalis is expected to peak in the early-morning hours on Saturday, May 24, with some forecasters predicting more than 200 meteors every hour.

 

The shower, which happens as Earth passes through a stream of debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR, has the potential to become a full meteor storm, according to experts at Slooh, a network of ground-based telescopes connected to the internet for public viewing.
