And, this time it's no space junk that was mistaken for a meteorite last month and disappointed many sky gazers.
The annual Leonid meteor shower is a phenomenon that is believed to originate from the Leo constellation.
If you don't mind staying outside in chilly weather this weekend, you're in for quite the celestial spectacle - the Leonid meteor shower.
Be sure to venture outside this weekend, as the skies will light up with shooting stars due to the Lenoid Meteor Shower. The Leonid shower is one of the six important meteor showers which could be viewed this year. (For 2017, that's between midnight and dawn on November 18.) But once in a while, during particularly heavy years, it can produce as many as 50,000 meteors in a single hour, Space.com reports.
According to Hassan Al Hariri, CEO of Dubai Astronomy Group, visibility of the shower this year will be excellent, as there will be a new moon on November 18.
As of Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service in Wilmington, N.C. expects clear skies during Thursday night and partly cloudy skies Friday night in Myrtle Beach. Though the meteor shower peaks during that time frame, meteors should be visible for a few days before and after the peak, just not as frequently. It was popularly known as the northern Taurid meteor as they had better views from the Northern Hemisphere.
