January 2 – New Moon Although it is an astronomical event that can be seen every month, few people pay attention to the total darkness of the Earth’s natural satellite. The New Moon happens when the Moon is placed between the Earth and the Sun, at an angle of 180 degrees, which causes that its illuminated hemisphere cannot be seen. This phenomenon will happen at 12:35 hours (Central Mexico time). January 3-4 – Quadrantids Meteor Shower This is the first major Meteor Shower of the year. NASA considers this phenomenon a “high activity” meteor shower. It will be possible to see it at night, in clear skies and preferably away from large cities, where pollution sometimes prevents its sighting. It is recommended to use a telescope to see the event more clearly. By 2022, the greatest activity of this shower is expected to coincide with the waxing Moon in an illumination of less than 4%. This means that there will be optimal conditions for the show to be visible to the human eye in practically any place on Earth, although in the Northern Hemisphere they are observed with greater clarity, according to the US space agency. “During its peak, you can see 60 to 200 meteors of the Quadrantids per hour, under perfect conditions,” says NASA. Last two weeks of March – Spectacle of Jupiter, Venus and Saturn The conjunction of three planets with the Moon is not so common. That is why this phenomenon is one of the most anticipated in 2022 and will happen, more precisely, on March 28, according to NASA’s astronomical events calendar. It is hoped that the show can be viewed without the need for telescopes or binoculars. It is only recommended to observe shortly before sunrise to enjoy the march of these three planets more clearly. April 22 and 23 – The Lyrids, the spring meteor shower It will be the second great meteor shower of the year. It is less active than the Quadrantids, but the clear sky this time of year increases the chances of seeing them clearly. The raining meteors come from Comet Tatcher and its radiant is located very close to the star Voga, in the constellation Lyra. This constellation gets its name from Orpheus’s lyre, which made music so beautiful that every living being stopped to listen. One day, according to Greek mythology, Zeus takes that lyre and throws it into space to form a constellation. May 5 – Halley’s Comet Meteor Shower It will be seen at 02:40 (Central Mexico time), according to the NASA calendar. However, activity will also be recorded for the next seven days. The celestial objects that can be observed were detached from Halley’s Comet hundreds of years ago. August 12 – Perseid Meteor Shower From the early morning of August 12 until the last hours of August 13, this great astronomical event will take place in which the detached remains of Comet Swift-Tuttle can be observed with the Earth’s atmosphere. NASA estimates that up to 60 meteors fall per hour. October 21 – Orionid Meteor Shower This is a discrete shower, but visible in very clear skies. They are high-speed meteors that radiate from the constellation Orion and also come from Halley’s Comet. December 13 – Geminid Meteor Shower It will be the last great astronomical event of 2022. It is considered the most intense meteor shower of the year, since more than 100 meteors pass per hour, most of them coming from the asteroid Phaethon, which in turn It is once part of the Apollo asteroids.
