Meteor Shower ‘Tau  Crumbling Comet 

Herculids’ From A

On the evening of

 May 30 and possibly into the morning of May 31, witness the birth of a brand new meteor shower called the tau Herculids.

What's even better is

that it may erupt into a dramatic outburst or historic meteor storm that will be talked about for years to come.

Still, take this with

 a grain of salt because there is also a chance that there will be little action,

Just like what happened

 with the May 15 forecast meteor event that didn't materialize.

Earth will cross the

 orbit of the comet 73P Schwassmann-Wachmann (SW3) that's been falling apart since 1995.

And over the past

quarter-century, the comet continues to crack up into dozens of smaller chunks, debris, and dust.

Such storms can produce

 beautiful lights — oxygen glows green and red, whereas nitrogen gives off blue and purple light, NASA reported.
