Alpha Monocerotids – Possible Meteor Storm

It is predicted that there could be an outburst, or even a storm of the Alpha Monocerotids meteor shower tomorrow morning.

The outburst is predicted to be at 04:50 tomorrow morning and may last for only 15 minutes.

The last outburst observed in 1995 saw 700 meteors per hour!

The thick crescent Moon will interfere a little bit, but shouldn’t spoil things too much, that’s if we get some clear skies, of course.

No telescope is required, just get out at the predicted time and KEEP LOOKING UP as the meteors could appear in any part of the sky.

Have fun folks.
