TOM HINDMAN/DAILY MAIL Those who stayed awake and ventured out to a low light area in the night sky were treated to a spectacular show of a meteor shower Saturday morning. Meteorologists forecast that peak showers would be between 2 and 4 a.m. This image was shot at 1:41am at Seneca Rocks. The first-ever Camelopardalid meteor shower peaked in the wee hours of Saturday, offering stargazers a rare sight -- the debut meteor display from the dusty Comet 209P/LINEAR.
Sky-viewers were thrilled by the possibility of this weekend’s Camelopardalids meteor shower. Some expected to see hundreds of meteors shoot across the night sky on Friday.
