WGRZ shared the news of what could be an epic meteor shower headed our way starting tonight and lasting through Sunday morning! The meteors that streak across the sky are some of the fastest among meteor showers, because the Earth is hitting a stream of particles nearly head on.

The skies need to be clear too, with very little or no cloud cover.
