The International Astronomy Center, through its Twitter account, published pictures of the sky showers, saying: “In conjunction with the meteor shower of the” Southern Deltoids delta “, pictures of some meteors that appeared in the Emirates sky last night, and were taken by the stations of the” Emirates Astronomical Network to monitor meteors and meteors “that are managed By the International Astronomy Center in cooperation with experts from NASA. ”
It is noteworthy that the meteor shower of delta deltaic peaks peak this year from midnight and during the hours before sunrise last Wednesday, July 29 in the sky of Egypt and the Arab world, it is considered a medium meteor, it is active annually from 12 July to 23 August and produces up to about 25 Meteors per hour at its peak, but the observed number is expected to be lower, and it is believed that its source is guilty (96P Mcholz)At this time of year, as the Earth spins around the Sun, the Earth travels the orbit of this comet.
Concurrent with the meteoric delta meteors, the first square moon will be present in the sky dome, but it will set after midnight, leaving the sky dark for the rest of the night to see the meteors..
The astronomical society in Jeddah revealed in a report that it is known that the annual showers originate when the earth passes through debris scattered along the orbits of comets and asteroids, where the pieces of gravel collide at the top of the atmosphere and burn at an altitude between 70 to 100 km above the surface of the earth when it appears as a strip Of light.
The best time to observe the delta delta meteors will be after midnight and the peak is expected to be around two in the morning local time, and the meteor flow will continue until before the dawn light appears, given the southeastern horizon from a dark location away from city lights, The observer must give himself at least an hour to see one of the meteors, and also the human eye needs about 20 minutes to adapt to the darkness, and there is no need to use special equipment to see the meteors as they are seen with the naked eye regardless of the observer’s location in the Arab world.
It is worth noting that the delta meteors will last for several weeks after the peak and will unite with the meteors of Perseus, which makes their observation open during this period, but it should be taken into account that the nights in which the moon is in the sky will decrease if the meteors are not visible.
