Top 10 astronomical events + astronomical calendar of 1402
Like the Barsavashi meteor shower, the Jozai shower also happens in the first nights of the lunar month this year after 3 years of colorful presence of the moon in the sky, and the thin crescent of the moon cannot cover the beauty of the meteors.
On the night of the peak of the Geminid meteor shower, under ideal observation conditions, up to 150 meteors can be seen per hour.
March 3: conjunction of Venus and Mars
In the morning of March 3, 1402, minutes before sunrise, Earth’s neighbors in the solar system are seen side by side in the sky. Their distance in the sky will be about half a degree, but they are actually 115 million kilometers apart.
Due to their short distance from the sun, you will only have half an hour before sunrise to observe this comparison.
Astronomical calendar of 1402
Zomit introduces the observational events of that month at the beginning of each month with a series of night sky observation guide articles since October 1400.
I thought to myself that many users, after reading the article at the beginning of the month, never revisit it during the month and probably forget many events.
That’s why I decided to prepare and present to users the observational events of 1402 in the form of a Google Calendar. This way, users can always see events in their phone’s calendar app and set reminder notifications for calendar events if they want.
Before using this calendar, it is important to know a few things:
- The events of this calendar, like the events introduced in the guide articles for observing the night sky, include phenomena that can be seen in the geographical area of Iran.
- The start and end times of each event are calculated for the geographical coordinates of Tehran.
- Additional descriptions of each month’s events will be added to the calendar at the beginning of that month, along with the publication of the Night Sky Observation Guide article. In these descriptions, the times are introduced based on the time of sunrise and sunset so that they can be used from any geographical point.
- The comparisons included in the calendar only include comparisons with an angular distance of 5 arc degrees or less, and if the distance between the two masses was greater, they were ignored.
- Events that are uninteresting or difficult to watch for casual users are not included in the calendar.
