Meteor shower this Friday

The Camelopardalids are a meteor shower from the 209P/LINEAR comet. It should be visible this Friday night. For the East Coast US, the best time will be 3 am. The meteors should be coming from the constellation Camelopardalis from the North. The orbit of this comet gets perturbed by Jupiter’s gravity, and this year may be more intense than normal. They say there may be from 3 to 100 meteors a minute, some sources say much more.
