If you were at all confused as to whether you spotted any meteors last night, well then, uh, you probably didn't. The meteors are fast-moving and characterized by their long trains—nothing like your everyday stars. "They may even be accompanied by a smoke trail or sonic boom," said CBC Radio Astrology Columnist Andrew Fazekas.
The best way to spot them? Lie down on a grassy patch, let your retinas adjust, and look toward the northeast, to the constellations Cassiopeia and Perseus. You won't need binoculars to view this show of cosmic dust, and you'll catch the most dazzling set between 3am and dawn.
