CNN - Some lucky night sky watchers might've caught a glimpse of a brand new meteor shower this past Monday night, as Earth passed through the debris trail of a crumbling comet. However, there was unfortunately no guarantee of a dazzling display, NASA stressed. “This is going to be an all or nothing event. If the debris from SW3 was traveling more than 220 miles per hour when it separated from the comet, we might see a nice meteor shower. If the debris had slower ejection speeds, then nothing will make it to Earth and there will be no meteors from this comet,” Bill Cooke, who leads NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, said in a statement.
