The show could be amazing. A meteor shower of great intensity could occur in the night from Friday to Saturday. But it nevertheless is visible from the North America . This meteor show will take place on the night of May 23 to 24 when the Earth crosses for the first time a swarm of debris from the comet 209P / LINEAR, discovered in February 2004 that orbits the Sun in five years. "At the moment, nobody knows exactly what will happen, because it will be the first time that the Earth will pass through this cloud of material from the comet," said Bill Cooke, director of the office for the study of meteors the Nasa . "Actually, this is Jupiter's gravity that brought this trail of debris in Earth orbit and it will be the first time humanity can see fragments of the comet burn in the atmosphere," he continues.
