Behind today’s doodle, there is a long story. So let’s know what it is.
The Gemini Meteor Shower 2018
This galaxy meteor shower got its name after the ancient Greek God Apollo’s son, 3200 Phaethon. It is an asteroid because of whose orbit, our sun comes closer than Mercury. For the first time, this astronomical phenomenon was discovered 35 years ago. Phaethon is responsible for bringing this Gemini Meteor showers to the Earth’s surface each December. In the night-time sky have grown more extreme, because with each passing year after 1800s explosion of the yellowish streaks of light.
During this event, the so-called ‘rock comet’ came within 6.4 million miles of Earth this past December. While last year’s supermoon with its beautiful moonlights made it hard to encounter the stunning celestial light show. But this year that won’t be a factor.
According to scientists’ prediction, if the sky is clear 2018 would be the best year ever to watch the light shower in the sky. Even the viewers don’t need telescope or binoculars fragments from the Phaethon’s debris trail will be visible after 9 pm on 13th December 2018.
The cosmic dust may result from the crash with another flying object, but if the Geminids land the earth there may be a little danger, as it normally disintegrates in the earth’s atmosphere.
So, if you are also excited to view this great light show, then go far from the city light, face South and don’t forget to dress up in your best dress as you are going to enjoy one of the greatest shows of nature on or above the earth.
