Meteor Shower Due May 24, 2014

Ahem!! A very interesting correlation between the following two, off the beaten path, articles.

Also, I feel that May 20th (5/20; 5-20; 520) was a a very significant date.

I’m sorry to be cryptic but…

    Ahhh. They were there, just not visible.

    Scroll down a bit.

    THE RADAR CAMELOPARDALIDS: On May 24th, many sky watchers were disappointed when the Camelopardalid meteor shower produced a measley 5 to 10 shooting stars per hour. At least 10 times that number had been expected. In fact, they were there, just invisible to the human eye. “The shower was quite strong as seen by radar, but almost exclusively in underdense echoes – that is, it was rich in faint meteors (i.e., 6th to 7th magnitude),” reports Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario.

    Me thinks the meteor shower developed a severe case of shyness when it realized millions of pairs of eyes were watching for it. Tee hee!

    Sudden Geo storm. Red level. I just checked the stats on a hunch. No significant flare showing up on X-ray Flux graph. Electron Flux jumped upwards which is unusual.

    Hi Polly,
    It’s me, Salty. I’m not logged in. Seen your reply in my email.
    Yep! The Wave / Pulse, that’s was I thought too.
    Re >>> “I am curious as to what comes after whether spectacular or not. These events do not occur in a vacuum, “out there.”
    Me too! And I agree.
    I’m watching live here.
    Comet 209P/LINEAR and Camelopardalid Meteor Shower

    Gotta go. I don’t want to miss anything. TTYL, or tomorrow.

    Perhaps it is part of The (oncoming) Wave, or as Valiant, terms it — a Pulse. I may miss the show because I really don’t want to be outside at that time EST. I am curious as to what comes after whether spectacular or not. These events do not occur in a vacuum, “out there.”

    Hi Polly,
    I hope it’s not a dud, I’ve been looking forward to it.
    There’s not too many clouds right now so we ‘might’ be able to see the show. If there is one.
    A first time encounter for Earth. = Signs and Wonders? A herald? Foretelling of something new, a new phase?

    We, in North America, could be seeing quite the show!! Too bad peak is between 2 and 4 AM.

    Space Weather News for May 23, 2014

    METEOR ALERT: This weekend, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR. If forecasters are correct, the encounter could produce an outburst of bright meteors numbering more than 200 per hour. Most models agree that peak rates should occur between the hours of 0600 UT and 0800 UT (2 a.m. and 4 a.m. EDT) on Saturday morning, May 24th, a time frame that favors observers in North America. It is worth noting, however, that Earth has never encountered this stream of debris before, so forecasters cannot be certain of their predictions. The display could be a complete dud, a fantastic “meteor storm,” or anything in between. Visit for full coverage.
