INTERNATIONAL -- You may want to stay up extra late Friday night to watch the sky. NASA is expected a never-before-seen meteor shower this weekend. Forecasters say it could rival even last year's. This is time-lapsed video from August.

But, be prepared. NASA says the new meteor shower could put on a spectacular show, or it could fizzle. Scientists aren't sure which. It's expected to peak after midnight Saturday, between 1 - 3 am.
