If you had plans for your Friday night, clear your schedule. The sky is falling and you can watch it live.

Slooh, a robotic telescope service used by professional and amatur astronomers, is hosting a live stream of tonight’s Quadrantids meteor shower starting at 6 p.m. EST. You can watch shooting stars while enjoying narration from astronomer Bob Berman.

Make some popcorn and feel the wonder of being a tiny speck on this big blue space marble.
