    May not be a storm, but could be strong. We've never gone through this debris field before, so we don't really know what it will be like. The big problem is that we'll be going through a debris field laid down in the 1800s, but there are no observational records to indicate if it really did anything then. The comet wasn't discovered until 2004.

    Hope it puts on a good show. I was station in Hawaii back in about 1964,1965 when I saw a spectacular meteor show one night. It left a lasting impression on me.
