As our Earth crosses paths with particles from the comet Tempel-Tuttle, a ravishing show of meteor showers will brighten our night time sky. The Leonid meteor bathe radiates from the constellation Leo, and is energetic for about one month, each November. This 12 months, the meteor showers will peak on November 18, and will probably be seen to the bare eye throughout the darkish hours of night time. They are going to be best to see from midnight till the solar begins to gentle the horizon.
Whereas all meteors are thrilling to observe, Leonids are among the many quickest meteors, and may create a dramatic present within the sky above.

The final meteor storm occurred in 2002, placing the following on our 2035 calendar—about 13 years away. Whereas we look ahead to that spectacular displaying, stand in silent meditation from wherever you’re at the hours of darkness hours of November 18 and maintain the Qigong posture, The Dragon Stands Between Heaven and Earth. Encourage your pals, neighbors, and members of the family to carry the posture as properly. In doing so, you’ll energetically join yourselves to 1 one other.
