Meteor Shower May 23rd

0_61_leonid_meteor_showerEUGENE, Ore. – With partly cloudy skies expected Friday night, Oregonians may be able to see the Linear meteor shower.

From 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, the Earth will pass through the debris trail left behind by comet 209P LINEAR.

There’s a chance to see 100-400 meteors per hour and possibly even the occasional fireball. However, the debris stream may be thin and we won’t see much of anything.

For the best viewing, find a place without any lights at all.
