    New 'Meteor Storm' from Comet May Light Up Night Sky This Month

    Skywatchers have something exciting to look forward to this month a possible new meteor shower that could send up to 1,000 shooting stars per hour streaking through the sky.





    On May 23 and May 24, Earth should plow through debris shed by Comet 209P/LINEAR, astronomers say. These extraterrestrial particles could give stargazers an incredible show as they burn up in the planet's atmosphere or the anticipated fireworks may fizzle out.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Well based on my area and media reports elsewhere, this ended up being a bust.

    Good to know it wasn't just me not seeing much. A breeze kicked up and the clouds moved and left behind a clear sky with lots of stars. I did see quite a few flashes in my periphery but no real falling or shooting stars. I was left with the feeling that I was seeing the meteor shower head on instead of say a profile view. I've never seen that many flashes on a normal evening so there's that at least.
