Possible Meteor Shower
« on: May 23, 2014, 12:11:49 PM »
This just out:

Space Weather News for May 23, 2014
http://spaceweather.com

METEOR ALERT: This weekend, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR. If forecasters are correct, the encounter could produce an outburst of bright meteors numbering more than 200 per hour. Most models agree that peak rates should occur between the hours of 0600 UT and 0800 UT (2 a.m. and 4 a.m. EDT) on Saturday morning, May 24th, a time frame that favors observers in North America. It is worth noting, however, that Earth has never encountered this stream of debris before, so forecasters cannot be certain of their predictions. The display could be a complete dud, a fantastic "meteor storm," or anything in between. Visit http://spaceweather.com for full coverage.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Was out a couple of times during the night for 15 minutes a time. Also nothing, just one faint meteor which is probably less than normal. As GP says maybe next time.
