Meteor Shower:You still have a chance to see on Tuesday

Stargazers have two opportunities to watch meteor showers this month: the Dracnoid and Orionids.

If you missed the Dracnoid show on throughout it's peak on Sunday and Monday, you still have a possibility on Tuesday. Look up to the atmosphere and you might glimpse a second displaying of the Dracnoid meteor shower:

"The radiant issue for the Draconid meteor shower nearly coincides with the head of the constellation Draco the Dragon in the to the north sky. That's why the Draconids are best examined from the to the north Hemisphere. The Draconid wash is a genuine curiosity, in that the radiant issue stands highest in the atmosphere as darkness falls. Unlike numerous meteor showers, the Draconids are more expected to fly in the night hours than in the forenoon hours after midnight. This wash is usually a sleeper, making only a handful of languid meteors per hour in most years. But watch out if the Dragon awakes! In uncommon examples, fiery Draco has been renowned to spew forward many hundreds of meteors in a lone hour. With no moon to interfere throughout the night hours, try watching at nightfall and early evening on Oct. 7 and 8," states EarthSky report.

Orionids on On Oct. 21

Before dawn it's the Orionids turn.

"With the waxing crescent moon setting before midnight (on Oct. 20), that means a dark sky between midnight and dawn, or throughout the best viewing hours for the Orionid meteors. On a dark, moonless evening, the Orionids display a greatest of about 15 meteors per hour. These fast-moving meteors occasionally depart persistent trains and bright fireballs. If you find these meteors in reverse, they appear to come from the association of the famous constellation Orion the Hunter. You might know Orion's brilliant, ruddy star Betelgeuse. The radiant is north of Betelgeuse. The Orionids have a very wide and irregular top that isn't very simple to predict. More meteors are inclined to go by plane after midnight, and the Orionids are normally at their best in the wee hours before dawn. The best viewing for the Orionids in 2012 will likely be before dawn on October 21," states EarthSky News.

The South Florida Museum and Bishop Planetarium is celebrating the wash rooms with a exceptional exhibit boasting a fragment of the Campo del Cielo meteorite dubbed "FeNi."

It's furthermore a very hardworking time in space right now. If you're having problem with certain wireless, cell teletelephone or GPS communication, it's due to a very active and large geomagnetic gale, or an Aurora, that wrappings much of Canada and hovering over to the north Maine.
