When the shards of a shattered comet approaching Earth tonight, the chances of a meteor storm are “hit or miss”, according to NASA. But astronomers are nonetheless excited about the potential for a swarm of new shooting stars.

The agency is advising skywatchers to watch the constellation of Hercules tonight (May 30-31) for signs of pieces of 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 (also called SW 3). If the shards arrive on Earth as they should, they can create quite a spectacle from above in the atmosphere of our planet.
