Looking for new meteor showers

The head of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office, Dr. Bill Cooke, talks about a US wide network of fireball observatories that  photograph/record and document meteors and any other space bodies that burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere everyday. Dr. Cooke and other meteor observers will be out in full force watching the skies on May 23-24, 2014 as meteor shower activity will be heightened with  Earth passing through a cosmic cloud of dust and debris from the (relatively) recently discovered periodic comet 209P/LINEAR. Should provide an exciting and hopefully harmless light show in the night sky.
