Memorial Day this year will have a meteor shower peaking when you head to bed! If you want to stay up late Monday night into Tuesday morning, you could see an amazing meteor shower, maybe!
The earth will pass through a stream of debris left by Comet SW3 when it broke apart in 1995. This could lead to a meteor storm! Experts say, though, there are a lot of unknowns. We don’t know how bright the meteors will be or how many will occur during the peak. The possibility is there for a meteor storm to occur, which would produce 1,000 meteors per hour! If the projection speed of the debris is slower than expected, this could end up being nothing, according to NASA scientists.
Since there is a chance for this shower to produce an amazing display, it is worth getting outside around 1 a.m. when we have clear skies here in the Miami Valley!
