Tau Herculids Meteor Shower

Monday night and Tuesday morning, Earth will travel through a comet's debris track. It may cause a meteor shower

NASA recommends 1 a.m. on the East Coast or 10 p.m. on the West Coast for viewing the tau Herculid shower. New moon means no moonlight to conceal meteors

NASA warned that bright, gloomy skies don't guarantee a spectacular show. Nothing could happen

Arnold Schwassmann and Arno Arthur Wachman discovered the commet SW3 in 1930

In the 1990s, the comet fragmented into bits, NASA reported

SW3 was in 70 pieces when it passed Earth again in 2006 and has continued to disintegrate since then

NASA's 2009 Spitzer Space Telescope scans showed that some debris are travelling rapidly enough to be seen

Around 30 observable meteor showers occur each year as Earth travels through a comet or asteroid's debris track
