Over 100 Falling Stars to Populate Tonight’s Sky [AUDIO]
UNDATED – If you find yourself awake at 2am, it could be worth your while to bundle up and trek outside.
The reason? That’s when a meteor shower, known by astronomers as the “Quads,” is supposed to start.
College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University physics professor Jim Crumley says you’ll have a chance to see up to 100 falling stars every hour.
Crumley suggests getting away from any city lights and finding a spot with a clear view of the northern sky – that’s where most of the falling stars will originate, near the handle of the Big Dipper constellation.
He also says that, even though the shower will be brightest around 2am, keep your eyes peeled any time before the break of dawn – you might still catch a few.
