Epically Shitty Meteor Shower to Chuck Some Fucking Stars Across The Sky This Weekend

Do you have literally nothing to do this weekend, including organizing your receipts, or sleeping? Consider celebrating your carefree life by taking in a truly mediocre meteor shower, courtesy of Mother Nature's amateur hour.

The Leonid meteor shower will peak this Saturday, in the hours just before dawn. First observed by Italian astronomer Leonardo DiCaprio in 1999, the Leonid is an annual shower described by ABC News as "not one of astronomy's bigger spectacles."

Expect to witness around five shooting stars per hour if you are one of the souls unfortunate enough to find yourself subjected to this stellar display, impressive only for the depth and completeness of its tedium. (15 to 20 meteors will fly across the sky per hour but you won't see all of them, especially with this attitude.)

ABC News is telling people to not even bother looking at the sky—where surely naught but disappointment awaits—until next month when something cool will finally happen there FOR ONCE:

And if you don't want to bother with this one, there's another shower, the Geminids, coming around Dec. 13. So bundle up - when they're at their best, you may see 100 shooting stars an hour.

The one bright side to this meteor shower is how dark it's going to be.

The envious moon (a night sky regular) would not be caught dead at this meteor shower. She will be but a crescent on Saturday, there "in spirit" more than anything. This means that any meteors that do happen to streak across the sky will be extra visible, like a firefly in a restaurant where all the lights are turned off.

So, if your car breaks down on a desolate stretch of road late Saturday night, that's something to look forward to.
