How to Catch a Falling Star
« on: October 24, 2011, 08:30:52 PM »
A brilliant photo highlights not only the beauty in an autumn evening but also the glory in capturing a falling star, naming it a double autumnal delight lol..
Theres something about catching a falling star that makes me feel lucky and alive, my mind sets to magical and i make wishes, i hope for dreams to come true. Being levitating and transforming It lets me know what a beautiful and magnificant world we live in, how vast and perfect, having the previledge and ability to experience each season, each sunset, moon phase and each new birth of daily sunrise, moresoever those mysterious and fascinating night skies. I sometimes dream of being scooped up by the big dipper and slowly poured along into the rivery stream of the milkyway.. tastes like chocolate..
Catch a falling Star!



"The sky was crystal clear and a moody fog was rising off the lake when I set up my camera at 1 o'clock Saturday morning," Berkes told SpaceWeather.com. "The Orionids were streaking bright, and I counted a couple dozen during the night."

If you missed the peakof the Orionid show Oct. 21 and 22, do not fear..The Orionid show will still be playing nightly, albeit at lower activity levels, from now until around mid-November. Two somewhat weaker meteor showers, the North and South Taurids, are kicking in as well, reaching peaks on Nov. 5-6 and Nov. 11-12. Then, on the night of Nov. 17-18, the Leonid meteor shower hits prime time

Heres some tips on catching a falling star..

1.Pick a viewing spot far away from city lights, where the skies are likely to be clear and wide-open. Higher elevations are usually better than lower elevations.

2.For help in site selection, you can check out the Clear Sky Chart website, which provides weather conditions for skywatching ... and links to popular viewing locations on a state-by-state basis. Your local astronomy club can also point you in the right direction.

3.Bring a blanket or a chaise lounge to lie back on. Have layers of clothing available in case the air turns chilly at night. Bring snacks or drinks. Bring a flashlight so you can find your way through the dark.

4.Bring a music player or radio if you need a diversion. But don't forget the earphones if you're going to be alongside other groups who may not appreciate your musical taste. Frankly, the best diversion is a deep philosophical conversation with your meteor-watching friends.

5.Don't give up too quickly. Give your eyes plenty of time to get accustomed to the dark.

6.Meteors associated with a particular shower (for example, the Orionids, the Taurids or the Leonids) appear to emanate from a particular point in a constellation (Orion, Taurus or Leo). But don't focus exclusively on that point. The best advice is to gaze straight up, taking in as much of the night sky as you can.

7.The later you can stay up, the better. Generally speaking, meteor shows don't get good until after midnight, when Earth is turning into the stream of meteor debris.

8.To get a better sense of what to expect at which time, use NASA's Fluxtimator. When you click in the right coordinates for meteor shower, date, location and viewing conditions, the Java-based calculator charts what the estimated meteor flux will be at different times.

9.Even if you miss seeing the falling stars of the fall season, you can experience them vicariously by checking SpaceWeather.com. And there's always another show on the horizon, such as the Geminids (peaking Dec. 13-14).

Awesome photo imagin and i absolutely love watching the night sky full of falling and shooting stars. Living in a big city filled with light pollution i rarely get the pleasure to enjoy it.

The first time i ever saw shooting stars is when i stayed in a cottage in Wisconsin far from the city lights and i was mesmerized. It was one of the most spectacular views i have ever seen. I became completely lost in it and forgot about everything around me.

For me there is a spiritual connection to the stars, throw in the moon and i am lost in dreamy state of mind.
