Can 2022 Perseid Meteor Shower Be Watched From Turkey?

Perseid is one of the most well-known meteor showers. Perseid meteor showers are the remnants of Comet Swift-Tuttle, which passed close to Earth in 1992.

Thanks to the gravity of the giant planet Jupiter, 200 meteorites can form per hour during the annual sky feast.

The fact that the stones become ashes by leaving a trace in the atmosphere is also known as “shooting star” among the people. The fact that the Earth is entering the cloud formed by the material left behind by Comet Swift-Tuttle also marks the beginning of the Perseid meteor shower, which we observe “annually”.

The meteor shower is named Perseid because it is observed in the Perseus Constellation region.

WHEN IS THE PERSEID METEOR RAIN?

During the Perseid Meteor Shower, an average of 50 to 70 meteor shifts per hour can be observed on the nights of August 11-12.

Meteor showers will form as a shooting star or fireball. Since the location of the Perseid Meteor Shower will be determined between 23:00 and 01:00 on August 12, it is possible to see more meteorites in this time period. If the weather is clear and the moon is bright, you may see more meteors.

CAN IT BE WATCHED FROM TURKEY?

Perseid meteor shower can be watched from Turkey in areas far from the city and in lightless areas where the weather conditions are suitable.

HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS OF PERSEID METEOR RAIN?

Even if you have thousands of pounds of equipment, determining the right time to photograph the Perseid meteor shower is the first step you need to take. Because knowing when the meteor shower will reach its peak and knowing where to look will increase your chances of catching those moments.

If you intend to get beautiful frames from Perseid, it is also important to choose the right region. The moon’s light can make it difficult to watch the show; therefore the best time for observation is between midnight and dawn; that is, the hours when the Moon begins to shrink.

Whether it’s meteor showers or star shots, it is necessary to capture a clear sky and suitable weather conditions at a point away from city lights. Meteorites can even be seen in the bright skies of urban areas, but in this case you can only see a quarter of them compared to the ideal setting.

Wherever you are, try to accustom your eyes to the darkness half an hour before you start watching the sky. Although tele lenses are useful for shooting distant objects, the result is a disappointment when it comes to shooting night and sky.

Therefore, our advice to you is to use wider-angle lenses when photographing the meteor shower. One of the first things you need to do to get good results in night shots is to stabilize your camera.

If you don’t have a tripod to fix your camera in low-light environments, you can position your camera on a stable place. Another thing you need to do to get good photos at night, in low light environments, is to use a timer, that is, a remote.

Looking at the shutter of our camera can cause vibrations, so using a remote always gives better results. After placing our camera on the tripod and connecting our remote, it’s time for the shooting settings.

Here you can use two shooting methods with professional or semi-professional cameras. First, you can take exposures of 30 minutes, 45 minutes or even 1 hour and more using the ‘bulb’ mode.

We bring the aperture setting of our camera to the most open position that our lens allows. One of the most troublesome issues of night shots or star exposures is the focus problem. If the lens you are using has an infinity mark on the focus ring, the problem is relatively solved.

Now it remains only to determine our frame. While arranging the frame, we have to be careful that a high-light object does not enter the frame. Since we will be taking a long exposure, these illuminated objects will shine very brightly and distort the photo.

If you have the opportunity to frame your frame, you can strengthen it by using different objects such as houses, cars, trees, rocks, huts. You can illuminate these dark objects by using an extra light source.
