Major meteor shower possible Friday night


Skywatchers might get a treat late Friday and early Saturday with an unexpected meteor showers that could rival the better known annual displays such as the Perseid and Leonid showers.

The Earth will be passing through debris left by the comet 209P/Linear more than 200 years ago.

Although astronomers say there's no guarantee, this could produce one of the most active meteor showers in decades in the U.S.

If that happens, the peak viewing time would be between 10:30 p.m. Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday.

The other factor, of course, is weather.

The National Weather Service is forecasting cloudy skies Friday night, but that forecast could change.
