Lyrid Meteor Shower is Finally here; Don’t Miss the Shooting Stars

The annual Lyrid meteor shower is starting. Every year it is realized about April 16 to 25. And this year it is going to fall on the morning of April 22 “with little or no interference from the waxing moon” as mentioned Earthsky. It is supposed to fall the greatest number of meteors during the few hours before dawn. You have an opportunity to see from about 10 to 2o Lyrid meteors an hour at the shower’s peak on the morning of April 22. In 2018, the waxing moon will set before the primetime morning hours. Earthsky indicated “In 1982, American observers did see an outburst of nearly 100 Lyrid meteors per hour.

Comet ISON 2013 is the reason of new meteor shower

By the word of scientists, the coming nearer comet, which can quite appear “A comet of a century”, can create an unusual type of a meteor shower. When the comet of ISON 2013 will fly by Earth this year, it is quite possible that the dust from a tail of a comet will create a meteoric stream. In that moment to the atmosphere of a planet will get a stream of the smallest particles, which once were part of a tail of a comet. According to the Paul Veygert instead of combustion in light flash, they will softly drift down to the Earth. By the Veygert’s computer model motes will travel with a speed of 125 000 miles/h (201 168 km/h) but as soon as they will get to Earth atmosphere, will be slowed down before total loss of speed. Because of it, observers on the Earth won’t be able to see meteors as they fall through the atmosphere in January 2014, the scientist added. The invisible meteor shower of a comet dust, if it really occurs, will be very slow. It can take months or even years for the fine dust settling from an upper atmosphere. But the hope of brilliant show can’t be lost.
