(5:00PM - 11/21/19) The Alpha Monocerotid meteor shower is expected tonight, also known as the "Unicorn" meteor shower. This event has quickly gained media and public attention across the county. However, upon further review by Bill Cooke, a NASA researcher, this meteor shower will only be lower end and only partially visible for half of the US...which being much more pronounced across the Atlantic. More information from Bill Cooke can be found at the following link...
With that said, Illinois will already be on the lower end of the spectrum for meteor shower potential. On top of that, with a series of storm systems moving through the region, cloud cover will prevent any viewing across much of the state tonight.
