SAN FRANCISCO, CA (KRON / NewsNation Now) – This is a bird, this is an airplane, this is a meteor shower from Leonid 2020!
November will bring a bright spot by 2020 – actually about 10 to 15 bright spots per hour!
Leonid’s meteor shower will send meteors that rise above the head again, according to Space.com
WHEN TO WATCH:
It is expected to peak on the night of November 1
In recent years, Jane Houston Jones of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has determined that 3 a.m. is the best time to capture the action, according to Space.com.
But in line with 2020, there is a downside, according to Space.com.
“If you’re expecting a memorable celebrity show early Tuesday morning, we’re sorry to let you know this: The 2020 version of Leonids is more than likely a disappointment, as the shower is likely to be weak and there will likely be long stretches when no to see none. “
HOW TO WATCH:
- Get ready to spend a few hours outside
- No special equipment is required
- Lie on your back
- Connect and relax
In 2019, the view of the soul was hampered by the moonlight. This year, a thin, crescent moon will be lit by only 5%, which makes it easier to see meteors.
In October, the Earth passed through debris from Halley’s Comet, leading to the production of the Orionid meteor shower.
