From constellations to meteor showers to visible planets, this program acts as your guide to these remarkable events and where to find them.
This is one of two meteor showers created by debris from Comet Halley. It is an above average shower that favours the Southern Hemisphere, here stargazers can see up to 60 meteors per hour when it's at its peak.
The observatory is opened for two major meteor showers, and it is also open most weekends for nighttime viewings. No matter how much or how little someone knows about science, Lorenzo said there's always something new to learn at NanoDays.
New animations show the paths of meteor showers such as the Geminids and Orionids, and allow viewers to see the moment when their streams intersect with the Earth's orbit.
About a day after the new moon conjunction, the moon then becomes visible again as a waxing crescent moon. As new moon nights are dark, they are often the best time to view other celestial objects like planets, meteor showers and deep sky objects such ...
A meteor shower happens when a number of meteors flash across the sky from roughly the same point. The annual Lyrid meteor shower takes places annually between April 16 and April 25.

meteor showers on Earth are caused by streams of meteoroids hitting our atmosphere. These meteoroids are sand- and pebble-sized bits of rock that were once released from their parent comet. Some comets are no longer active and are now called asteroids ...

The next major meteor display, after Perseids, derives its identity from Orion the Hunter, a dazzling equatorial constellation. But there is a hiatus, separating the two peaks.
The retiring engineers told her that long after she left the job, she would dream of trains. And they were right. The scenery between Tucson and Lordsburg, New Mexico, was amazing.
Ale is developing "Sky Canvas," a project that aims to artificially recreate shooting stars and meteor showers for events.
SETI Institute scientist and astronomer Peter Jenniskens shows how meteor showers don't stay in one place. His findings are based on the study of data from the Cameras for Allsky Meteor surveillance Systems (CAMS) which has tracked the trajectories of ...
Aside from it being a great place to see meteor showers and comets, she notes that there is always "an assortment of of scorpions and flea-infested, plague-carrying rodents.

Whatever the financial benefits, the artistic ones are nonexistent, with the rarest of exceptions (2000's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) coming like meteor showers but producing only squibs of light. All this should lead studio executives back to the ...
The children with Mr. Campbell are unidentified. Credit William Widmer for The New York Times. He was an enslaved teenager on a Jesuit plantation in Maryland on the night that the stars fell.
As a landscape photographer, I've been shooting this world famous natural landmark countless times over the past years. My most popular images are my astro landscape photography of the arch, with Perseids meteor showers, star trails and The Milky Way.
The dusty debris streams that cause meteor showers are much more complex than scientists had thought: They warp and change on their trips around the sun, rather than following one path, close observation has revealed.
There was also a more distant relative who would teach me fascinating things about carnivorous plants, meteor showers, and dinosaurs, and who always told me that they lived tens and hundreds of millions of years ago, even though I knew I was supposed ...
Some meteor showers persist for weeks and months, even though Earth sweeps a big arc around the sun during that time. The meteors arrive from a slightly different direction each day, which is a clue to why these showers last so long.

Research science in its purest form is all about information. Gathering, testing, analyzing results and then doing it all over again for impact and use.
For the Indian navy that was trying to boost its maritime strength in 1987 by replacing its aging aircraft carrier INS Vikrant, there couldn't have been a better match than the HMS Hermes, later re-christened as INS Viraat by the Indian Navy.
In Universe B, meteor showers in the Hoenn region rained down upon the home of the Draconid tribe, creating Meteor Falls. They were overflowing with primal energy, which awakened Groudon and Kyogre.
California seems to have the best of everything: warm and sunny year-round weather, excellent gastronomy, world-class cities, beautiful beaches, a low-key attitude, a vibrant blend of many cultures and all sorts of adventure.
This year it will peak, and be most visible, on Saturday April 22 after midnight and just before dawn on Sunday April 23. The Lyrid is considered to be one of the oldest meteor showers known. It is named after the constellation Lyra. It usually ...

Be the ZHR as it may, meteor shower ratings can be very helpful guides, especially if you are planning a community, classroom or club outing.
It's a normal lousy March for meteor showers. We have nine of them, all weak. I have listed them but only the first and last chronologically would be of any real interest since they come near a new moon.
Leo is also the radiant point of the Leonids meteor shower. meteor showers are typically named for the constellation they originate from, in this case Leo.
