It’s called the Camelopardalid meteor shower, and unlike annual showers such as the Perseids and Leonids that have been occurring for hundreds or thousands of years, it will occur for the first time the night of May 23 and early morning of May 24. And the all-new, never-before-seen, awkwardly named meteor shower just might knock your astronomical socks off. The meteor shower will be debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR, a very dim comet that orbits the sun every five years.
