The encounter of the meteoric material from 73P/Schmassmann–Wachmann 3 produced during the comet’s 1995 outburst in May 2022 provides a rare and valuable opportunity to understand a fragmenting comet. Here we explore various ejection configurations and their impact on the meteor outburst detected in the early hours of UT 2022 May 31. We show that the dust must have been ejected ∼ 4 to 5 × faster than calculated by water-ice sublimation model to best match the observed meteor activity. As only a…
