NASA: The most spectacular meteor shower in years coming

Earth has been presented with an opportunity to witness one of the most beautiful occurrences in the night sky in just a week’s time.

According to NASA, some of us will get to witness one of the brightest and most intense meteor showers in years.

It is named Tau Herculids. Some scientists are even claiming that this event might be as intense as the Leonid meteor shower witnessed 20 years ago.

And interestingly, this potentially spectacular meteor shower is courtesy a fragmenting comet which used to be a faint spot only observed through a telescope.

This particular comet, SW 3, was first discovered in 1930 by two German astronomers, Friedrich Carl Arnold Schwassmann and Arno Arthur Wachmann.

The comet orbits the Sun every 5.4 years and made several close flyby’s to the Earth but was never visible to the naked eye.
