(WIBW)-- Stargazers may or may not be in for a "stellar" treat very early Saturday morning the 24th.
This will be the first time the Earth has crossed the path of Comet 209P/LINEAR.
The comet with the very technical name was first spotted in 2004 and while there is no danger directly from the comet, the material in the tail may create a spectacular show.
Some estimate predict between 100 and 400 meteor strikes per hour. If that proves accurate, the meteor shower will be the most spectacular in recent history.
