Alpha Monocerotid ‘meteor outburst’

November 21, 2019 @ 10:15 pm – 11:15 pm America/Chicago Timezone

This meteor outburst / storm happened in 1925, 1935, 1985, and most recently in 1995. There’s debate as to whether or not anything spectacular will happen tonight. If we’re lucky, between 100 and 1,000 meteors per hour are expected during this event that might last somewhere between 15 and 40 minutes.

Because the event is so short-lived, folks in the western USA will be out of luck. If you live in the middle or eastern North America, South America, Europe or Africa, be sure to look up! You could witness the event of a lifetime…

Look in the direction of Monoceros, “The Unicorn”.
