Watch the Potential Tau Herculids Meteor Storm Live Online

A brand new meteor shower could light up the Memorial Day night sky on Monday and Tuesday (May 30 and 31) or it could be a big bust. But anyway, you will be able to watch it live online.

Called the tau Herculids meteor shower, the event has the potential to be a so-called “meteor storm” of 1,000 shooting stars per hour overnight Monday as Earth passes through debris from Comet 73P/ Schwassmann-Wachmann 3. But it could also fizzle out completely, scientists don’t know yet. A NASA scientist called it an “all or nothing event”.
