How to see one of the most spectacular and accessible meteorite shows in the night sky of 2017.

This summer, try to catch one of the most spectacular and accessible shows of the night sky: a meteor shower. We met with NASA meteorite shower expert Bill Cooke to give us advice on how to see each of the rains this summer and all the details about the most spectacular ones. Suggestion: I definitely did not stop spending the summer, so keep reading the best things that will come this year.

The observation of the meteor shower does not require more than your eyes, you want to take as much sky as possible. Go out into the street in a nice dark sky, away from the lights of the city, leaning on your back and looking up. Take your choice of drinks and snacks and things like that. Cook for at least a couple of hours outdoors, it will take about 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, and most showers only reveal their splendor over time: You can not observe a shower of Meteors poking his head the door and looking for five minutes.

Meteor showers fill the sky as the Earth traverses a trail of dust and debris ejected by an asteroid or comet as it circles the sun. As dust and particles collide with the Earth's atmosphere at high speed, they rub against the air particles and heat up, disintegrating in flashes of light. Meteor showers can fill the sky, but they always move away from the constellation bearing the name that is called radiant shower head. Larger fragments can also create fireballs. The rain peak is when the Earth passes through the heart of the dusty route, and meteors can often be seen for several days before and after that peak point.
