英仙座流星群田园之旅 Perseid Meteor Shower Rural Tour (11~12/08/12)

英仙座流星群田园之旅       Perseid Meteor Shower Rural Tour (11~12/08/12)

相信参与我们6中旬停泊島的旅程的一些同好,在海边观星时曾逮到好几颗亮丽的流星吧!而向往数看流星的你,是否想和友人一起分享欣赏流星的喜悦?趁著8月份英仙座流星群到来的季节,计划一下追逐流星的行程吧!

8月11日晚,是英仙座流星群极大期的时候。适逢今年的英仙座流星群极盛期没有月光的干扰,也落在周末,Sunbright Services 和 Starfield Instruments Supply 因而联合主办一场为期2天1夜的英仙座流星群观赏活动。此流星群在极大期时,估计流星数可达每小时80颗左右,是每年度相当稳定的流星群。凡源自英仙座的辐射点的流星,就是英仙座流星群。


英仙座流星群是众多流星群中极富盛名的流星群之一,流量大且稳定;是最活跃,也是最易被观测的流星群,也是对非专业流星观测者来说最好的流星群。

观测流星可以说很简单,不需要大型的天文望远镜,但也需要环境很大的配合。愈黑的夜空与空旷的四周,对观测流星愈是有利。因为流星是一种动态天态,随时从天际任何角落“一划而逝”。目视看流星,该怎么看呢?每当大节庆有燃放烟火时,大家会怎么做呢?是的,就是那么简单啊!只是活跃的流星,四处窜流,因此观测者最好能躺下,面向天空。记得要没有阻碍物与人造光害的防碍。


所以我们特別主办了这场观赏活动,聚集了天文爱好者,到安全的古法有机农场,追数流星之际,还可以透过天文望远镜,观测其他的天体,如行星、星团、星云等。星团星云是指亮度较低但形态不一的深空天体。要观测它们,除了适当的光学仪器,更重要的是适合的地点与相关的指导。



In every August, there is a sky event should not be missed by astronomy enthusiasts and casual meteor chasers. This is the meteor shower called Perseid Meteor Shower, radianting from constellation of Perseus. Perseids is a top 3 famous meteor shower that with consistent appearance of meteors. Non-season observers are addicted to watch Perseids due to its bright meteors and the consistency. During the peak, zenith hourly rate (ZHR) of Perseids is expected up to 80 meteors.


This year, the peak of Perseids falls on 12 August morning. In order to enjoy Perseids, we are organizing a 2-day-1-night watch at Janda Baik on 11 August. The trip is open to anyone who has interest in Perseid Meteor Shower as well as other wonders of the universe.


We don’t need special equipment to view meteors but naked eye. However, a safe and darker environment with open clear view of sky is necessary to “count” and catch meteors. We will show our participants of direction of Perseids and celestial objects such as star clusters and nebulae of summer sky through telescopes. Well prepare yourself hot beverage, comfortable reclining chairs or mat and a wish-list to attend the Perseid meteor shower.


A meteor, merely a streak of light, is shooting from any part of the sky. Therefore, a better or remote site with darker sky is very important and crucial for stargazing and meteor watch. Participants are encouraged to bring along the equipment for sky treasures, if any. For instance, a pair of decent binoculars, such as 7×50, is an ideal optic to hunt for clusters that positioned in Milky Way band. We’ll show you “how-to”.
