Every year the Earth passes through the meteor stream called Complex of Taurids in two periods: Jun / Jul and October / November. In the first period produces meteors coming from the Earth's dayside, so less vigorous. However, the second period produces particularly interesting meteors to the observer, particularly those aware of bolides view (fireballs). The Taurids swarm is a dynamic system composed of a multitude of fragments, ranging from micro dimensions of the kilometrics, orbiting the Sun two well-known rains are linked to such site:.

Zero Shadow Day Event 2015

The event named Zero Shadow Day was organized at Vadodara on 3rd June, 2015. The definition of noon in some text books is given as when the sun is overhead. Which actually is not the case of every day observation? The long shadows of objects at sunrise start becoming smaller and smaller as the day progress until the shadow is smallest. At this point the shadow is exactly aligned north - South. For those between the latitudes 23.5 deg. south (the tropic of Capricorn) and 23.5 deg. north (the tropic of Cancer) can experience the sun right overhead at Zenith... Read More...

THE APRIL 04 2015 LUNAR ECLIPSE, MOST LIKELY TOTAL

By Helio C. Vital A lunar eclipse will be visible from western North America, eastern Asia, the Pacific and Oceania as the Moon will cross the northern half of Earth`s shadow on April 4, 2015. It is expected to be a very interesting event due to the fact that at 12:00 UT its umbral magnitude will probably barely exceed 1.00. It is thus within the range of current uncertainties associated with the size of Earth`s umbra (the darker inner region of Earth`s shadow). Consequently, as surprisingly as it may seem, this time it may not be utterly appropriate to simply predict...

On Global Star Parties and Birthdays

by Gary

The Manila Street Astronomers are weekend amateur astronomers. Because of this, today is its last day of participation in GAM 2015. But what a way to end the celebration though – with a bang and not a whimper. The sky was clear all throughout the night.
