Don't miss tonight the peak of Orionid meteor rain

ALIVE If you are a person who likes to observe celestial objects, you may be happy to hear this news.

An orionid meteor shower will be held. This event takes place every year in mid-October and provides the perfect view to see shooting stars.

Quoted on the site MirrorMonday, October 21, 2019, the Orionid Meteor Shower is a piece of comet 1P / Halley that interacts with Earth's atmosphere.

Every time Halley's comet returns to the Solar System, its cell nuclei release rocky ice and dust into space. The dust grains turn into Orionid meteor showers in October and Eta Aquarid in May if they collide with the atmosphere.

The Orionid meteor shower will occur between October 2 and November 7, 2019, but the peak will occur on October 21. At this peak time, you will be able to see 20 meteors per hour.

The way to see it is to find an area away from city lights or roads. Lie on your back to the southeast if you are in the northern hemisphere and if you are in the south to the northeast.

Within 30 minutes, you will be able to adapt in the dark and begin to see meteors. The presentation will last until dawn.
