Possible outburst of the alpha Monocerotids Meteor shower (October 22 04:50 UT).
The alpha Monocerotids are normally inconspicuous from Australia. But this year there is the prediction of an outburst of up to 400 meteors per hour around 04:50 UT on the 22nd (around 3 pm AEDST).
While this is during daylight hours for us, it is possible the peak may arrive early or late so observations on the morning of the 22nd from around 1 am are encouraged.
Does it mean from 1 am on 22nd November, I can see it from Melbourne?
