Hello all,

We are aware of potentially strong tau-Herculid shower in 2022. However my modelling shows that there are some chances for activity in 2017 on May 30 at 17:24 UT.
I suggest that if any activity appears, it should very low, perhaps, at the level of separate meteors, but their brightness is expected to be high, so even 1-2 such meteors could make a lot of fun. Details are here:

Mikhail,

Many thanks for this information. I hope that those in favorable longitudes watch for this possible activity.

I made photographic observations of tau-Herculids possible activity this night, from 1720 to 2000 UT. My camera catched only three sporadic meteors.592e83ab3e809.jpg

Mikhail,

Capturing 3 sporadic is impressive on a slow May evening! Thanks for sharing your picture and information with us!
