Want to see the potential Tau Herculids meteor shower? Here’s what to expect, according to NASA.

When fragments of a shattered comet approach Earth tonight, the chances of a meteor storm are “fickle,” says NASA. But astronomers are still excited about the potential of a swarm of new shooting stars.

The agency advises sky watchers to look at the constellation of Hercules tonight (May 30-31) for piece marks of 73P / Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 (also known as SW 3). If the fragments arrive on Earth in the right way, they could create a spectacle high enough in our planet’s atmosphere.
