Thank you for reading the news about technology: Meteor showers reach their peak at a rate of 40 “meteors” every hour soon and now with the details of the news

Cairo – Samia Sayed – A rain of meteors called Perseids will occur soon, as it will become visible to the naked eye when it reaches its peak on Thursday of this week, and the celestial event occurs when the Earth passes through the galactic debris left by the passage of the comet Swift-Tuttle, and it is expected that the climax of this The event is on the night of August 12th until the early hours of August 13th.

According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, this rain of meteors is called the best of the year due to how bright and energetic it is, with up to 40 meteors expected per hour this year.

“If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, away from light pollution, you might spot more than 40 meteors per hour,” NASA explains, adding, “If you’re in a city, you might see only a few every hour; skywatchers will see more than half an hour.” The southern sphere also has fewer meteors, with none appearing below 30 degrees south latitude.

Perhaps the best way to catch a glimpse of the parade that takes place each year is away from the towns and cities lights, buildings and trees and where there is a clear view of the horizon.

The moon will be in a thin crescent phase during this event, creating ideal viewing conditions without interference from moonlight.

This means that the moon will emit very little light, at about 20 percent of illumination, creating ideal conditions in the sky for stargazing.
