The sky is all set to display an amazing Leonid Meteor Shower on 17 November. However, the experts predict that in the Leonid Meteor Shower numerous shooting stars would emerge after every three minutes.
A few days ago, people witnessed several shooting stars and fireballs in the sky. These fireballs indicated towards the arrival of the Leonid Meteor Shower.
The sky has arranged this massive show with the help of Comet-Tempe Tuttle. The Comet Tempel Tuttle makes a ring around the solar system after every 33.5 years. It leaves behind a trail of dust and other fragments during its round around the solar system. Every year, the Earth moves through that wake due to which the remnants of comets strike the atmosphere and give birth to a huge meteor shower.
NASA informed that a crescent moon will offer extremely dark sky. The dark sky will enable the sky gazers to view the meteor shower. In short,the entire Leonid Meteor show depends upon the light of the moon.
As per the reports of NASA, the people of both hemispheres would be able to view this spectacular scene. Fortunately, this time sky gazers do not need to look at a particular like all the previous lunar and solar eclipses. People can effortlessly enjoy this scene with their naked eyes.
Additionally, NASA will also show the live broadcast on two websites on Monday night. NASA’s webcast announced that it will start the show at 7:30 p.m ET. On the flip side, the Slooh.com will begin the live telecast at 8 p.m. ET.
