Two meteor showers expected Thursday night


Thursday might be the perfect night to stay up late and venture outside because there could be quite a show!

Every year there's a Gemini meteor shower, but Thursday there could be another as well.

A new meteor shower under the Pegasus constellation is expected to be out the next few nights.

"If this meteor shower holds up to predictions, we might see 3 or 4 or 5 meteors per minute and that would be pretty spectacular," says Art Klinger, director of PHM Planetarium.

Klinger says if it's a clear night, the best time to view both is around midnight. And if you're out then, look for the Gemini shower in the south and the one under Pegasus will be in the west.
