A broken comet might send a new meteor storm to North America.

When one thinks of Germany in the 1930s, one might not immediately think of space exploration.

The search for asteroids was on for two German astronomers at the Hamburg Observatory in Bergedorf, Germany.

Friedrich Carl Arnold Schwassmann and Arno Arthur Wachmann discovered a new comet on May 2nd, 1930, which they named 73P/Schwassmann-Wachann 3. 

 Don't worry if you haven't heard of this comet before today because it isn't really amazing.

The faint comet is in a rather close orbit to our planet, passing by every 5 years or so.

The comet, however, is so dim that it was lost to skywatchers soon after it was discovered. From 1930 to 1979, comet 73P/SW3 was missing from the sky.
