Comet Making Its Five Year Loop Around Earth

May 23, 2014, 6:21 PM by Grant Smith

Comet Making Its Five Year Loop Around Earth

With Memorial Day weekend fast approaching, many of you may be headed to the lake. When the sun sets you could have a great view.

The comet 209P/Linear will make its once every five year loop around the sun.

Earth will pass through the debris field for the first time, causing what some people are calling the "May Camelopardalids" because the shower will appear to come out of the constellation Camelopardalis. Because this is a first of its kind meteor shower, we could see more than 400 meteors per hour or this could be a complete bust and the debris field could miss the Earth entirely.

So tonight, KELOLAND's best chance to see this event is in the northern sky between 1 and 3 a.m. Temperatures are expected to bottom out in a comfortable mid-50s. Skies will remain clear to mostly clear in the northern part of our viewing area, but in southern KELOLAND clouds could move in and block the view.
