    All of you night owls or early risers need to set your alarm clocks for 2am EST on Saturday morning so you can have the opportunity to witness a never before seen meteor shower lighting up the night sky. It is anyone's guess what Camelopardalis has in store for us, but scientists are confident that people living on the North American continent will have the best view in the house.

    It is no surprise that those of you who live in less populated areas will undoubtedly see a much better show than those of you who live in densely populated cities, but that doesn't mean you city dwellers are completely out of luck because you can watch a live stream of the meteor shower on Sloooh's YouTube page.

    The most exciting thing about this is that no one has any idea what it will be like. Will it be a spectacular show lighting up the night sky or will it be a dud? We will all know in a little over twenty-four hours.

    I'm glad that I live out on the West Coast and I will definitely be staying up late to catch this show. Is anyone else planning on staying up late or waking up early to catch the never before seen meteor shower?

    I really hope it does. I'm driving out to the country to get a good view of it.

    I read where one "expert" expected between 30 and 400 meteors per hour. That's a large range.

    Most estimates I see are around 200/hour
