Watch the Eta Aquarid meteor shower in the wee hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings. The shower can produce as many as 20-40 meteors per hour at its peak, which falls around May 4-5. SpaceWeather.com suggests to expect 30+ meteors per hour, given the light of the waning moon. Like those in other annual showers, the Eta Aquarids get their name from the point from which they appear to radiate. In this case, it's the star Eta Aquarii, part of the constellation Aquarius. According to EarthSky.org, the meteors appear to emanate from a part of the constellation known as the Water Jar. Check out EarthSky's charts of how to spot the constellations here . The best time to look for the meteors is in the darkest hours of the morning, around 2-4 a.m. Best to look from a spot with a wide view of the sky and away from bright city lights.

It's not every day that a person makes a selfless and heartfelt donation to a hospital. It's even rarer when it comes from a teenager. Thirteen-year-old Cassidy Schirmer is the exception. She chose to complete her National Junior Honor Society service project by donating to the Greater Baltimore Medical Center neonatal intensive care unit. Schirmer got the idea from a family friend who works for the hospital. The Bel Air eighth-grader hosted a "virtual" baby shower online, raising $300 to purchase supplies.

If skies clear of clouds and snow before dawn early Friday, there's a chance the Quadrantid meteor shower could be visible over Maryland. The shower reaches its peak for only a matter of hours, and it could arrive during the afternoon here. "But the predictions aren't always accurate," writes Bruce McClure of EarthSky.org . "This is nature, after all. " If the peak does occur during night hours here, as many as 50-100 meteors could be visible. But even if it doesn't, you might be able to spot a meteor or two in the hours before dawn Friday.

Mark your calendars for a new meteor shower - possibly a meteor "storm" - this week. While most showers are annual occurrences and easy to forecast, this one is a first. Earth is expected to pass through a debris trail left behind a comet that was discovered in 2004 and named Comet 209P/LINEAR. The shower could mean 100 "shooting stars" per hour, or more. Some scientists have suggested rates of up to 400 meteors per hour. How many end up being visible is uncertain because astronomers aren't sure how much and what kind of debris is trailing the comet.

A predicted "storm" of meteors overnight turned out to be mostly a bust, though some in the Midwest U.S. got a better glimpse of the shower than in the mid-Atlantic. The Earth was expected to pass through a debris trail left behind a comet that was discovered in 2004 and named Comet 209P/LINEAR. Astronomers predicted anywhere from 100 to 400 "shooting stars" per hour, with a peak from 2-4 a.m. Saturday. Instead, the shower peaked at only around 5-10 meteors per hour, astronomers said.

Some clouds could partially block the view of a new meteor shower from Maryland tonight, but there is also a way you can hear the meteors' presence on a regular FM radio. To see the meteor shower, it's best to go somewhere far from city lights and with a wide open view of the sky. Partly cloudy skies are forecast overnight in the Baltimore area, which likely shouldn't be enough to obscure the heavens completely. Meteors, dubbed the Camelopardalids for the constellation they appear to emanate from, may start appearing before midnight, with a peak in the wee hours of Saturday morning before daybreak, about 2-4 a.m. Earth is expected to pass through a debris trail left behind a comet that was discovered in 2004 and named Comet 209P/LINEAR.
