The Delta Aquarid meteor shower will peak in the next couple of days as the earth slams into a cloud of debris left behind by a passing comet.
Every year, like clockwork, our planet plows through a stream of particles the size of sand grains, which burn up in the upper atmosphere.
From a dark countryside, observers can expect to see upwards of 15 to 20 shooting stars per hour during the pre-dawn hours on Saturday and Sunday.
In the cities and suburbs, you can expect to see between 5 and 10 meteors per hour.
The Delta Aquarids appear to radiate out from its namesake constellation Aquarius, which rises to its highest point in Canadian skies around 3 a.m. local time. Astronomers predict we should be left with dark enough skies to catch all but the faintest of meteors.
This shower makes a great opening act for the Perseid showers, which will make an appearance in mid-August.
