Astronomy enthusiasts have seen some spectacular images in October,media reported. The “blue moon”, for example, appeared on Halloween, the first full moon to be available to people in almost all time zones of the world since 1944. There was also an impressive meteor shower in October, allowing people to look up at the sky outdoors. November will also see some spectacular events: two meteor showers and a 2000 d’eso.
The first of the two meteor showers is the Northern Taurus meteor shower, which will appear in the night sky between November 11 and 12. This is a less active meteor shower, with only about five meteors expected per hour.
However, the Northern Taurus meteor shower is particularly famous for producing slow, bright fireballs, which for some may make it more attractive than the October meteor shower. Between November 16th and 17th, the Leo meteor shower is in its inflow, with 15 to 20 meteors per hour.
On November 30th, the moon at the end of the month will look slightly darker than usual due to the effects of a half-shadow eclipse. The eclipse can be seen in the Americas, Australia and much of Asia.
