The Tau-Herculides meteor shower will begin on the night of May 31: there will be an online broadcast

The meteor shower will take place from Monday to Tuesday (May 30-31). The Tau-Herculis shower could become a meteor storm

during which 1,000 stars fall per hour. At this time, debris from comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 will fly by the Earth.

But astronomers also fear that observers may not see a single meteor. Scientists from NASA called this event "All or Nothing".

Some scientists doubt that the meteor showerwill be seen as comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 may rapidly disintegrate. It was first opened in 1930. It revolves around the Sun every 5.4 years, each time approaching the Sun at a distance of 9.2 million km.

Everyone can watch the meteor showerlive on the night from Monday to the beginning of Tuesday. This is possible thanks to the Virtual Telescope Project, led by astrophysicist Gianluca Masi. Viewers will see all-sky camera surveillance in Arizona and Brazil, Masi said. You can also watch the broadcast directly from the Virtual Telescope project website.
