Canadians looking for something to do in the wee hours of Saturday morning should head out to the yard and look up, as scientists predict that’s when new meteor shower will illuminate the night sky.

The meteor shower will be the first from a comet with the rather clunky moniker of 209P/LINEAR, so-named for the group that discovered it.

While it’s not expected to be spectacularly bright, associate professor in the department of physics and astronomy at the University of Western Ontario Paul Wiegert expects some kind of light show. And the average onlooker doesn’t need a telescope or binoculars to see it.

Weather permitting, peak viewing time will be between 11 p.m. Friday and 1 a.m. Saturday on the West Coast, between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Saturday in Ontario and Quebec, and between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Saturday in the Maritimes.
