Get those binoculars and telescopes off your dusty closets. And just wish it won’t rain tonight.
Things are looking… up! And brightly!
A “prolific” meteor shower is expected to light up the skies of Asia and Europe for two days – tomorrow night (Nov. 17) and Wednesday (Nov. 18), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
Here in the Philippines, Pagasa administrator Prisco Nilo said Filipinos will get a glimpse of the meteorological phenomenon, known as the “Leonids” meteor shower, between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. of the following day.
“We have a very good chance that we’ll see meteor showers,” Nilo said. philstar.com
According to scientists, tonight’s meteor shower might produce more or less 500 meteors an hour!
