During the nightfall of this December 22, the sky will give us an unparalleled spectacle that you won’t want to miss.

(MERIDA Yuc – TYT) – Nature is magical. Undoubtedly, the month of December has incredible astronomical phenomena in store for us; however, one of the most amazing ones arrives tonight in Yucatan.

The Ursids meteor shower will be visible in its maximum splendor tonight, December 22, 2021. For this reason, here we will tell you how and at what time you will see the fantastic meteors in the night sky. So get everything ready to watch the night sky with great attention because the amazing stars will be seen throughout the entire firmament.

The meteor shower will appear in the night sky at its peak today, December 22, with more than ten meteors per hour falling in the sky. Unlike other astronomical phenomena, meteor showers are easy to see in the sky since no special instruments are needed to observe them. Therefore, you only need to pay close attention to the sky during the nights of December 22.

Here in Yucatan, the best time to appreciate the phenomenon will be around midnight on the beach. However, you will be able to see the stars in the sky as early as nightfall. The meteors will be visible all over the sky. Still, you will be able to capture a more significant number of them if you direct your gaze towards the constellation Ursa Minor since these celestial bodies come from comet 8P/Tuttle. If you don’t know how to locate the set of stars, you can use mobile apps like SkySafari for Android or SkyView for iOS, which help you find the stars and constellations in the sky.

Don’t forget to make a wish!
