Best time to catch this weekend's meteor shower

COLORADO SPRINGS - For all you stargazers, a meteor shower is set to light up the sky this weekend. 

While the weather is a concern, if you get outside at the right time on Saturday night, you may see a portion of the show. 

According to the International Meteor Organization (IMO), you will get a better view if you start your stakeout before 11 p.m. 

It may be just a sprinkle and not a shower, but IMO says, "these meteors tend to be very long and long-lasting so it is definitely worth trying to see some of them."

It’s also a good idea to check the weather forecast. You can do that by visit KRDO's website

If you see can clearly see the moon, you could be in for an overnight show, leading into early Sunday morning. 

This event is just a preview to the anomaly that will take place on August 21. 

The Solar Eclipse is going to put portions of the U.S. in complete darkness. 

Check the map below to see if you are in the path of the full eclipse.
