Can a person see a meteor shower during the day?

Normally, no; the average "shooting star" meteor, with its

lovely bright trail through the night sky, is unnoticeable against

the blue of the daytime sky.

But there are exceptions. If the meteor is big enough, it will

be bright enough to be clearly seen in the daytime.
