A first-of-its-kind meteor shower is expected to happen Friday night and into early Saturday morning. The Camelopardalid meteor shower is formed from dust from a periodic comet called the 209/LINEAR. Unlike other meteor showers expected to be visible around the same time of year, the Camelopardalid is uncommon because its debris is strongly influenced by Jupiter's gravity. People in North America will get the best look, and peak activity will be from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.
