The andromedic they are an annual swarm of shooting stars that are visible from November 23 to 27 and that appear to radiate from the Andromeda constellation.

When they come into contact with the Earth's atmosphere, the rate of fall experiences a sharp slowdown, which transforms into a sudden rise in temperature, reaching 4000 ° C in a few tenths of a second. The atmospheric gases that surround the pieces are ionized. This trail of ionized gases is what we see.

The best time of observation is the dawn, since our position on Earth is facing the orbit, so we are facing all the objects that can cross it.
