SALT LAKE CITY -- For the first time, Earth will pass through a new trail of comet debris that may create what stargazers hope will be a spectacular light show.
FOX 13 News' Dave Nemeth has more information on the meteor shower in the video above.
The Salt Lake Astronomical Society is staging two star-gazing parties over the weekend. One is Friday night at Wheeler Farm in Midvale, 6351 South 900 East, and the second is Saturday night at the Stansbury Park Observatory in Tooele County. Both events are free to attend, and both are scheduled to begin at about 10 p.m. or dusk, according to the society's website.
