Perseid meteor shower peaks at dawn on Friday (13)!

The dawn of next Friday (13) marks the height of the classic annual meteor shower Perseids, one of the most famous electronic intense.A sony name Ericsson refers to the constellation on Perseus, where popular shooting stars tend to emanate from this carry out year. Electronic everything does not pass on the comet’s meal, more specifically perform Swift-Tuttle, a star that passes by the surroundings perform Sol every 40 years. Though he’s not around at the moment, there’s a trail of dust from his last pass. When the Earth crosses its orbit, these little grains encounter our electronic atmosphere and burn, producing the visible spectacle.

With its radiant (regional about where they seem to break the meteors, if you draw a zero line in the opposite direction to its movement) in the boreal constellation over Perseus, the phenomenon is more intense the further north one is intense, however by performing South bands it will also be possible to see it. In Brazil, the further up the map, the better. Thus, the North electronic Northeast regions perform better than the Midwest, Southeast electronic South regions. Despite these variations, no one should be discouraged, zero. With a little patience, everyone can collect a handful of shooting stars.

The basic suggestion, given by astronomer Gabriel Rodrigues Hickel, from a Unifei (Government University of Itajub), look for a place with good visibility perform cu the more of a visible sky dome, the better electronic I learned to lie down. The period between 3am electronic and sunrise performs Sol the perfect. In the region-specific they would look perform sky, says Hickel. The perfect is to look for a dark place, far from a light pollution in big cities, with a clear horizon (no buildings, trees or hills nearby) electronically lie down in a chair on the beach, on the way the u maximum over the sky you can see.

The astronomer suggests at least some time on observation to see a good number about meteors. For local operating systems near line perform equator, expect some incidence on to 40 meteors per hour. As ze moves south on the map, the rate goes sony ericsson decreasing, until it reaches approximately 5 meteors per hour in the south perform country. However, it is worth remembering that these therefore fees that take the entire electronic sky into account are good observation conditions. I therefore need to modulate expectations. Be patient electronically don’t expect a pyrotechnic gift, says Hickel. Watch for at least some hour for a reasonable number about meteors to see.

Best time to watch, perform Brazil, between seeing that 3h electronic while 6h. Electronic The good news is that this year the Moon, in a thin crescent, will not offer the risk of dazzling observations with its brightness. Good ass!
