Saturday, December 08, 2018


During these days, the sky will be the scene of an astronomical spectacle. Is that a spray of stars occurs from the 7th of February and until the next December 17th. This is "The Night of the Gemsids", a stellar phenomenon that captures the fans of astronomy. This will be the biggest of 2018 and beyond that the moon will intensify.

In this context, San Juan is the ideal scenario to observe it. Is that the purity of the sky, away from the lights of the city, make it look even more magnificent. Be a "full show", say the specialists. Among those, the doctor in astronomy of the Astronomical Observatory of Crodoba, Fazzundo Rodrguez who was advised to see it from the province.

"He's far from the lights of the city, and I remember when he noticed the Gemini's as a student." It was impressive, "he said sharply clenching the rain." The rainfall of stars will have its maximum activity, nights from Thursday 13 and Friday, December 14, and be a natural spectacle of lights especially for the Northern Hemisphere.

As you say, the ideal position to see the rain is "to lie down and shoot your head northward." If we are standing, it is best to turn our backs on the gmin's constitution, just to see the star of the star, because if we focus on nothing, we'll just see them coming out. "

This year, it will be "The Night of the Gimmicks". It is that though it happens even more, the moon will give even greater effort. "On December 15 (night of the 14th, the top of the rain) it will be a quarter higher, so it's going to be much more, because of the darkness, something that would not have happened on a full Moon (which is the 22, when the phenomenon is finished), "he finished.
