The newly discovered meteor shower Camelopardalids will make a history-making appearance tonight sometime between 2 AM and 4 AM (EST). Some astronomers are predicting between 200 to 1,000 meteors an hour.

Scientists are calling the meteor shower significant. This will be the first time in a generation that a new meteor shower will be visible, so this may well be a lifetime event.
