The rapidly moving Leonid meteor is a & # 39; hit this weekend, with good opportunities not seen in the hours before Saturday, November 17, and Sunday, November. 18. New Hampshire weather conditions may only work for the annual show. The remainder for the next hour is a fast and convenient calling for wings.
Most of the experts say Saturday is the best chance to do & # 39; Seeing the hunting stars because and moon is set shortly after midnight in most of the world, but Sunday morning will also work. The Leonids usually spend 10 to 15 meteors an hour. Moon is about 12:35 a.m. on & # 39; East Coast. To find out what time will moon & where you are living, go here.
The meteors can be colorful and they make firearms – that is faster, faster; remains of colorful paths. And did we name them fast? They spread over the spear at about 44 miles each, making them one of the fastest accidents.
In some years, Leonid's meteor shower produces tax, but it does not appear to be one of them, according to Earthsky.org. In some years, they take up to 1,000 meteors per hour. It was the last time in 2001.
The Leonids, which are related to the comet Tempel-Tuttle, get the name from Leo the Lion's rapture and come from the stars that make up Leo. And while they move from that part of the air, it is not necessary to find the reubalt. If the weather is allowed, you will be able to view it from any part of the air.
But if you want to find Leo the Lion, look at the eastern mouth. It starts to & # 39; climbing to the air after midnight, and when it reaches the highest point, the highest numbers will be seen.
Two or two meteor shades are left before the calendar arrives until 2019.
Usually, Gemini's meteor shower, which comes from Gemini, is the best one of the year, comprise up to 120 per cent-hourly multi-shaped measurements at the highest level on December 13-14. The shower runs from December 7-17, and is made by a debris left by the asteroid called 3200 Phaethon, which was found in 1982. The conditions should be excellent because it will be & # 39; The first season moon is located shortly after midnight, leaving dark shields. The maximum watchdogs are in the morning, but the Geminids are also active before midnight.
It is a small man in the final meteor shower of the year, and is often not seen. The Ursids meteor shower, which runs December 17-25 and 21-22 peaks, and do about 5 to 10 meters per hour, but occasionally out of hours 25 or more. Everyone is full of moon, however, but the richest one. The Ursids are derived from the Minor Minor reulist, and are made by dust router that left the Tuttle comet found in 1790. The most watched better after midnight.
