Possible 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 Meteors?!

It is possible that comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 might well leave enough debris in the way of the Earth to cause a meteor shower, this is due to the Earth passing through the main clump of debris that was left behind since 1801. Theoretically if any meteors are to occur they are expected to be radiant in Canes Venatici from yesterday till tomorrow. It was clear last night but I didn’t get chance to hunt out any… I might tonight. For further info take a look at the ever excellent SPA Meteor section [meteor activity guide]
