Since yesterday, several Fort Saskatchewan residents have noticed something strange in the sky -- meteors, and a whole lot of them!

These meteors are a part of the Leonids, an annual meteor shower known for its spectacular storms that occur every 33 years.

The showers started earlier this month and will end on November 30. On Thursday night (Nov. 17) the shower will reach its peak, with around 250 meteors falling every hour.

The best time to take in the shower is right before the moon rises, as the moonlight can sometimes make the meteors hard to see in the night sky. 

Although it sounds like a lot, this year won't have one of those spectacular storms. Those storms produce anywhere between 1,000 to 100,000 meteors per hour.
