HOUSTON -

Late Friday night and into Saturday morning, NASA said it is expecting a never before seen meteor shower rivaling last August's Perseid meteor shower.

The new meteors -- the Camelopardalids -- are remains of a meteor first discovered in 2004. 

According to NASA, sky-gazers may see meteor activity beginning at 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Astronomers said gazers might see around 100 to 400 meteors an hour.

The shower’s radiant -- from which meteors seem to come -- will loom in the northern sky close to Polaris, the North Star.

The spectacle is expected to peak between one and three a.m. Saturday.
