Dear meteor observers,
I just realized, while reading the 2017 IMO Meteor Shower Calendar, that Mikhail Maslov made some predictions about a potential meteoric activity linked to 249P/LINEAR, with potential activity on April 20th, 2017, around 16h 33min UT. Meteoric activity would be associated to small meteoroids, so meteors may be faint, or only radio detectable.
Does anyone (Mikhail, or anyone else) have any further information about that?
I remember that some activity predictions have ever been made with 209P/LINEAR (in May 2014) and 252P/LINEAR (in March 2016), but no real activity was observed, from what I remember. Do we have to expect the same from 249P/LINEAR associated activity? Or is this comet currently much more active than the two previously cited ones?
What is this activity linked to? Shall we come clmose to one of the comet dust trails? Which, in perticuliar? Do we have a guess on the expected ZHR (if any)?
Thanks in advance for yous answers!
