Meteor Shower

1-21-41-31-1

On the night of December 13th to 14th, NASA announced that there would be a meteor shower.

According to the news, the meteor shower of Geminids, happened because the Earth was currently crossing the orbit of the asteroid Phaeton …

– Ivy, did you know there’s going to be a meteor shower tonight? – She murmured to Lisa while she jumped around Ivy.

– Yeah, I saw a NASA documentary. Ivy replied.

-Could we speak with guys and camp out on the mountain?

– Good idea! We are far from the city that is full of lights.

At the top of the mountain they split into groups, the boys set up the tents, and the girls prepared the sticks on the floor and the hot cocoa.

Ivy loved nature and was anxious about the phenomenon, it was the first time she was going to enjoy this show and that far from the city.

– Make fingers so that to sky be cloudless from 7 pm. Johnny commented as he photographed Ivy.

-I’ve already told you, and at about this time the sky will be clear and today it will be a moonless night which makes it favourable to the view of the meteor shower. The moon is coming at 4 o’clock in the morning and will only have 10% of its maximum brightness as it is approaching the new moon phase. Ivy said as she stared up at the sky.

Na noite de 13 para 14 de Dezembro, a NASA anunciou que iria haver uma chuva de meteoros.

Segundo a notícia, a chuva de meteoros da Gemínidas, acontecia porque a Terra estava actualmente a cruzar a órbita do asteróide Faetonte…

– Ivy, sabias que está noite vai haver uma chuva de meteoros ? – Cantarolava Lisa, enquanto saltava à volta de Ivy.

– Sim, eu vi um documentário da nasa. – Respondeu Ivy.

– Podíamos falar com o nosso grupo de amigos e acampar na montanha?

– Boa ideia! Estamos longe da cidade que está repleta de luzes.

Ao chegar ao topo da montanha dividiram-se em grupos, os rapazes montavam as tendas e as raparigas preparam as mantinhas no chão e o cacau quente.

Ivy adorava a natureza e estava ansiosa pelo fenómeno, era a primeira vez que ia apreciar este espetáculo e longe da cidade.

– Faz figas para que o céu esteja sem nuvens a partir das 19 horas. – Comentou Johnny, enquanto fotografava Ivy.

– Já me informei e por volta dessa hora o céu irá estar limpo e hoje será “uma noite sem lua” o que torna favorável às observações da chuva de meteoros. A lua nasce pelas 4 horas da manhã e terá apenas 10 % do seu brilho máximo pois está a aproximar-se da fase de lua nova. – Disse Ivy, enquanto olhava atentamente para o céu.
