Added Bonus for Memorial Day Weekend
A New Meteor Shower!
Sky watchers in North America could witness a new meteor shower on May 24th when, for the first time, Earth passes through a cloud of dust from periodic comet 209P/LINEAR.
Meteor showers are fairly regular events in the annual astronomy calendar, but Earth could be in for a surprise on May 24 when it encounters a century-old comet stream that it has never encountered before.
The stream was created by Comet 209P/LINEAR, which was discovered in 2004 by the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research project, and it just so happens that this year our planet’s orbit and comet stream are positioned just right for an interplanetary rendezvous. And if some forecasters are correct, this month could see a celestial fireworks display, potentially even outshining the famous Perseid meteor shower that peaks in August.
In the Lake George area any dark space, on the lake, on a mountain top, at the Battleground Park, but even on the patio – it could be a great show! Maybe too cloudy – watch online – link here for article.
