From two weather showers, a view of Mars and Uranus and a very rare blue moon, the whole family can be guaranteed to see many spectacles.
As long as there is a clear sky, you will be able to see these showers, planets and the moon with the naked eye.
This meter shower is usually a minor one, although there have been great exceptions in the past – including 2018.
This year’s shower is on the night of October 8-9 and is best seen at night, in contrast to most rain showers where activity is usually highest after midnight.
One of the most famous and most reliable weather showers, Orionides this year on the night of October 21 and 22, between midnight and morning.
Meteors are fast with good vehicles and are made of wreckage from Haley’s comet. You can expect to see a peak of 20 per hour.
The best time to see the Red Planet is on October 13 because it is closest to Earth.
It will see the brightest and best Mars in the night sky and you should be able to see some details on the surface of the planet with medium sized binoculars.
