Orionids meteors decorate the sky of the world tonight

Arab Weather - Sinan Khalaf - The Jabariyyat meteors reach their peak this night, and continue until the sunrise tomorrow, Thursday, so will we be able to see the Jabariyyat meteors with the naked eye?

We might be able to see 20 meteors per hour

The Astronomical Society in Jeddah clarified in a report today that the meteors of the Orionids are medium meteors, which are active from October 2 to November 7 and may produce at their peak up to 20 meteors per hour, but the number cannot be determined precisely, as meteors are famous for their contravention of expectations. The observed number exceeds a few meteors, or the number may be greater than estimates, and it is expected to intensify its activity 3 hours before sunrise Thursday.

The weak moonlight is a helpful factor in seeing Orionids meteors

This year is considered one of the ideal years to observe the meteors, because the moon will be in the crescent phase at the beginning of the month and it will set early at night, which will leave the sky dark to observe these meteors from a dark location away from the city lights (and not from the house), where the meteors emerge outwardly from the northern part For the Orion star group (Gemini), which is the reason for its name, but meteors can appear from anywhere in the sky.
