Two starfalls are expected at once in early and late October


Astronomers predict two starfalls at once in October 2022. On the 8th, the Draconid meteor shower will reach its maximum. From 20 to 500 shooting stars can be seen per hour. The speed of their flow is slow, which distinguishes the Draconids from other starfalls.

It is best to observe them as soon as it gets dark and before midnight. In the sky, they will appear as moving red “droplets”.

On October 21, the Orionids meteor shower is expected. About 20 shooting stars can be seen per hour. Astronomers say that Orionid meteors are fast enough, most often white, but there are also red, blue-green, yellow. You can watch them all night.

The Big Moscow Planetarium tells about it.
