A new meteor shower
could materialize from a crumbling comet and here’s how to watch it.
On the evening of
Monday, May 30, astronomy lovers may get to see a brand new meteor shower light up the night sky.
According to Space.com.
Dubbed the ‘tau Herculids’, this meteor display might be one of the most dramatic observed in over two decades.
Meteor showers occur
when dust or particles from asteroids or comets enter Earth’s atmosphere at a very high speed.
NASA expects a
meteor display on the evening of May 30 going into May 31.
The meteor fragments should
enter Earth’s atmosphere at approximately 10 miles per hour – which is on the slower side.
