Meteor Storm Possible Monday Night

If you see the skies filed with shooting stars Monday night, don’t worry the sky isn’t falling. There is a possibility thousands of meteors will be seen across the sky in a short amount of time Monday night. There’s also a chance it won’t happen. Astronomists say it’s hard to predict if we could see thousands of meteors an hour, or we won’t. This rare meteor storm would be from a comet that broke apart about 25 years ago. The meteor shower is called the Tau-Herculid Meteor Shower. However, this year, the comet debris could send several fragments into the Earth’s atmosphere, which could put on quite a show if it happens. If the storm plays out, it will be Monday night from 8:11 until 10:45 p.m., with peak activity between 9:45 and 10:45 p.m.
