How to watch the potential tau Herculids meteor storm online

A brand-new meteor shower could light up tonight’s Memorial Day holiday sky on Monday and Tuesday (May 30-31) or it may be a big bust. But either way, you’ll 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 the Earth passes through debris from Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3. But it could also fizzle out completely, scientists just don’t know yet. One NASA scientist called it an “all or nothing event.”
