Nareit invites you to view the Orionids meteor shower and the effects of Halley’s Comet on the night of October 21 until dawn of October 22.
The National Institute for Astronomical Research (NARIT) revealed that on the night of October 21 until the morning of October 22, there will be an orionid meteor shower. The effects of Halley’s Comet when approaching the Sun will begin to be observed from about 10:30 pm on October 21 onwards until dawn on October 22 in the region of the Orion constellation. The average maximum fall rate is about 20 stars/hour, if the sky is clear without rain. An opportunity to see beauty all over the country.
DD reveals About the photos of the “Banana Ink Nebula – Flying Bats” taken by a Thai person – they are difficult to see.
Rain forecast in advance October 16 – 25. At the end of the rainy season, the winds will fluctuate!
The Orionid meteor shower is caused by Earth crossing the orbit of Halley’s Comet (1P/Halley), leaving a large amount of dust and small objects in its orbit. As it approached the Sun in 1986, Earth’s gravity pulled dust and such objects into contact with Earth’s atmosphere. A fire broke out. It is seen as a flash of light resembling a fireball spreading around the constellation Orion. They are yellow and green. Beautiful across the sky
For the 2023 Orionid meteor shower that night. The moon will set behind the horizon at about 11:30 p.m., after which there will be no disturbing moonlight until dawn the next day. It also takes place on Saturday and Sunday nights. Therefore, it is a good opportunity to watch the meteor shower. The best way to observe is with the naked eye. Choose a location that is free of distractions or as far away from city lights as possible. This will make the shooting stars more visible.
Although the Orion meteor shower averages only about 20 meteors per hour, it is a meteor shower located in the constellation Orion. It is an easily observed constellation and there are many distinct bright stars that can be seen, such as the star Betelgeuse (orange-red), the star Rigel (blue-white), as well as the star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky in the nearby Canis constellation. If you record the meteor shower that night, you can also get a photo of a shooting star next to some of the most beautiful stars in the sky.
The Orionid meteor shower is a phenomenon that is observed between October 2 and November 7 of each year, so we can wait to see its beauty every year. However, if it is Halley’s Comet, which is the origin of this meteor shower, calculations estimate that the comet will pass near the sun again in the middle of the year. 2064, so we’ll likely see it again in another 38 years.
