In May, the world will witness two astronomical events, one of which is rare


The month of May is marked by spectacular celestial events and astronomy exhibitions following a series of spectacular astronomical events in April.

Observers can see exciting celestial displays during this month, and the following are the most important events that astronomers can follow:

– May 6: Mete-daliyat showers
This will be the first astronomical event in May, culminating in the night of May 6, one of the most active meteor showers, with 60 meteoroids in the sky all the time in the southern hemisphere and 30 meteors per hour in the northern hemisphere.

The "Ita Daliyat" showers are produced when the dust of the comet Hali enters the Earth's atmosphere, where it burns.

– May 18: Complete Blue Moon
The full blue moon will shine the night sky on this day, and the full moon occurs when the moon falls on the other side of the earth like the sun, which means that your face will be fully illuminated.

This is known as the Blue Moon because it is the third complete satellite of the station and is a rare event.

This moon was known to the Native American tribes as "Full Flower Moon" because it appears in the spring when the flowers begin to bloom.
