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.
According to NASA, the comet disintegrated in the nineteenth century and we are entering the debris field for the first time and up to 300 meteors per hour are possible. If 209P/Linear has a six year orbit, we should have seen many meteors from this comet during the past century. By now, we should have actually encountered meteors on a annual basis from this comet.
I believe 209P/Linear is actually C2012 X1 (Linear).
I hope for a truly spectacular meteor shower on May 24, 2014 to hallmark the efforts of the Secret Space Program.
