"Cams" Meteor Shower Tonight Could be Boon or Bust

There may be a good meteor shower tonight, but no one knows for sure!

The Camelopardalids Meteor Shower is a new "shower" to Earth so it's unclear to astronomers if the show is going to be good or not, but the prospects are encouraging.

But if you are up between 1:00am and 3:00am tonight, and the skies stay clear enough, there could be between 100-200 shooting per hour coming from the northern sky.

Unfortunately some high level cirrus clouds may inhibit Acadiana's viewing of the "Cams" Meteor Shower.
