Comet 209P/LINEAR is now in the field of view of STEREO Ahead's HI2 imager. This is a periodic comet discovered on February 3, 2004 by Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) using a 1.0-metre (39 in) reflector. It was given the permanent number 209P on December 12, 2008. Preliminary results by Esko Lyytinen and Peter Jenniskens predict 209P/LINEAR may cause the next big meteor shower which would come from the constellation Camelopardalis during May 2014. There may be 100 to 400 meteors per hour. All the trails from the comet from 1803 through 1924 may intersect Earths orbit during May 2014. Comet 209P/LINEAR by STEREO A HI2
