It’s a great time to see spectacular astronomical scenes on Earth. At the moment, bright comet Neowise can also be seen in the night sky, while some meteors are active in the sky. He ventured into the New Mexico desert on Tuesday night in search of the gorgeous night scene, according tomedia outlet cnet.
The reporter said comet Neowise and its long tail appeared before his eyes had fully adapted to the darkness. It was revealed that in less than 10 minutes he managed to see two meteors passing, one of which appeared to cut across neowise’s tail. Unfortunately, he didn’t immediately take out the telescope for a more detailed look or a camera shot the scene.
But the internet will never disappoint people, and here are some of the Neowise photos shared by netizens:
In one, a Wisconsin photographer seemed to capture what the cnet reporter saw:
According to Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society, more than a dozen meteor showers are active, but only a few of them are likely to produce many visible meteors this week. This week, the Alpha Capricornids and Anthelion meteor showers are likely to produce multiple meteors in an hour.
Regardless of location, observers on this night estimate that the total number of meteors can be seen every hour to be close to three, Lunsford said.
