The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA ) said that meteor showers can be observed with the naked eye and no special equipment such as telescopes or binoculars is required.

“However, clear skies and a dark viewing location away from the city lights are required to maximize the viewing experience. The height of the radiant point in the sky also influences the zenital hourly rate, which corresponds to the number of observable meteors, ”explains PAGASA.

Here are the four showers to look out for in the Philippine sky this November, the astronomical one Diary of PAGASA.

Northern Taurids will be active from October 20th to December 10th. It will be visible as soon as the constellation Taurus rises on the eastern horizon at around 5:57 p.m. until dawn breaks around 5:33 a.m.

Taurid’s meteor shower is best seen when the constellation Taurus reaches around 82 ° at midnight.

“During peak activity [on November 12th] the moon is in the first quarter of the constellation Aquarius and will soon set around 5:25 pm. So the moon will not interfere with the meteor shower observation, « said PAGASA.

Next comes Leonids, an annual meteor shower that occurs when the earth passes through the debris of the Tempel-Tuttle comet – a comet that takes approximately 33 years to completely orbit the sun.

“You can enjoy the view of the meteor shower when the constellation Leo rises in the eastern part of the sky on the night of November 17th at around 11:47 pm. until sunrise the following day around 5:58, ”said PAGASA.

The meteor shower of the Leonids is active from November 6th to 30th and will peak on November 17th to 18th. Reach November.

Another notable shower are the α-monocerotid meteors, which can be observed as soon as the constellation Canis Minor rises over the eastern horizon.

“The number of visible meteors increases with the height of the radiating point in the sky. This meteor shower is best seen when the radiation point is at its highest at 4:00 in the morning this shower can be significantly hampered by the presence of the waning domed moon, « said PAGASA.

 » November Orionids are best too see when the radiation in the sky is highest at around 88 ° around 2:00 a.m. until dawn around 5:39 a.m., « said PAGASA.

 » The waning crescent phase of the moon during the night of the summit becomes minimal Generate interference, ”added PAGASA.
