A never-before-seen meteor shower may peak this weekend—and the sky show may rival even August’s famed Perseids.

If the most optimistic predictions hold true, then a genuine meteor storm may be in store for sky-watchers, with as many as 200 or more shooting stars per hour flying across our skies at its peak, which will occur in the morning in Europe and very early in North America, on Saturday, May 24.

It was certainly disappointing.

All I saw were high altitude jets from 2am to 2:40 am. Someone is laughing real good about now.

Oh, I'm so glad I didn't set an alarm to get up extra early for this as I'm a big fan of watching meteor showers. I had a feeling not to bother because of all the wild weather that came through my neck of the woods yesterday.
