Aurigid Meteor Shower Airborne Campaign Scheduled at NASA ARC

In 83 B.C., a comet, now called Keiss, passed by the sun and ejected some bits of comet material. Astronomers expect the Aurigid meteor shower on Sept. 1, 2007, a result from Keiss comets earlier encounter with the sun in 83 B.C., to be spectacular.
