Debris from Halley’s Comet will enter the Earth’s atmosphere Thursday evening in what is known as the Eta Aquarid meteor shower.
Catching the meteors may be tough depending on your location. The meteors enter the Earth’s atmosphere at the speed of 148,000 mph. Slooh, a space broadcasting site, provides a livestream for those afraid they may miss out.
The Slooh livestream will be broadcast from the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands beginning at 8 p.m. EDT, in a feed that will be available above. Slooh host Paul Cox and astronomers Bob Berman and Eric Edelman will provide commentary alongside the livestream.
Slooh is a TIME partner. You can go to Slooh.com to join and watch this live broadcast, snap and share your own photos during the event, chat with audience members and interact with the hosts, and personally control Slooh’s telescopes.
