Watch Tonight's Meteor Shower, the Camelopardalis (the giraffe)

According to EarthSky.org.. There is an exciting new meteor shower on the scene, and the predicted peak is Friday night, the night of May 23-24, 2014!

North America is well placed to see this shower, which stems from the faint comet 209P/LINEAR and will radiate in our sky from the far-northern constellation Camelopardalis. How many meteors will you see? Maybe none! Maybe hundreds. Even experts will be watching this shower, hoping for a good display. Models suggest that the best viewing hours are between 6 and 8 UTC on May 24. Because of the time predicted for the meteor display, observers in southern Canada and the continental U.S. are especially well positioned to see the meteors in the early morning hours of May 24 (or late at night on May 23). Will the predictions hold true? They are not always 100% reliable, which is why, no matter where you are on Earth, this shower is worth a try around the night of May 23-24.
