Weather can also affect visibility. According to CNN meteorologist Dave Hannan, most of the skies in the United States should be clear during peak nights.
Leonidas’s body, the weak Comet Temple-Tuttle, will cross the Earth’s orbit, creating a vapor of debris in the atmosphere. A comet takes 33 years to complete one cycle of the sun.
Meteor showers get their name from Leo the Lion Wire, as the meteor would have come from the stars that make up the lion’s mane. But you don’t have to look in the direction of the constellations, because the altars will be visible all over the sky.
Bright meteors can be colorful, and they are fast, moving at a speed of 44 miles per second – one of the fastest meters. Fireballs and “Gerager” alt are also a feature of the Leonid shower. Fireballs are bright and spacious and can last longer than seven meters, while grath grazers with long, colorful tails appear close at a distance.
Unfortunately, this year’s showers will not produce a seasonal storm, which occurs when you can see altitudes of up to 1000 meters per hour. Although such an incident has previously been linked to the Leonid Meat Shower, the last storm occurred in 2001.
The best time to see a weather shower is between midnight and early morning, wherever you are in the world. Light pollution in cities can interfere with vision, so go to a quiet place with low light.
