Fans of astronomy will be able to observe the rain of Orionian stars as of this weekend in the peninsular region.
The frequency will be of two meteorites every five minutes, approximately, informed the Yucatecan astronomer Eddie Ariel Salazar Gamboa.
This meteorite shower can be seen from October 4th to the 7th, and will be one of the most “remarkable” night events.
It is best appreciated when observed without light pollution, so it is advisable to get away from the city and move to places such as the coast.
“Yucatan will be a good point to observe the passage and disintegration of meteorites through the celestial vault, some of which may last several seconds, according to their size and chemical composition,” he explained.
He commented that it is one of the four most important meteorite showers of the year and the most famous as the cause of the phenomenon is Halley’s comet.
“This shower of stars is due to the cosmic debris left behind by Comet Halley in 1986,” he said.
Other “meteorite shower” are that of Cuadrántidas, on January 3 and 4; Perseids, on August 11 and 12; and Geminids, which starts on December 13, in all of these it is possible to observe between 60 to 100 meteorites per hour.
Of lesser intensity are the Líridas, Eta Acuáridas, Táuridas and Leónidas, among others, the expert added.
The specialist explained that at the Hypattia Astronomy Club, within the Technological Institute of Mérida (ITM) the Telescopes Workshop will be held, where attendees can learn about the characteristics of these instruments, types, their classification, and even how to assemble and handle it.
