Jakarta -For those of you who are hunters of natural phenomena , then don't miss this night, Sunday (13/12/2020) in vain. This is because the night sky will be beautiful with the presence of the Geminid meteor shower .
Geminid meteor showers are meteor showers whose radian point or point of origin for the emergence of these rocks is in the Gemini constellation. Well, the peak Geminid meteor shower occurs on December 13-14, 2020.
The National Institute of Aeronautics and Space ( Lapan ) revealed that the Geminid meteor shower can be witnessed from 20.00 WIB on the night of December 13 to 05.00 WIB the next day on December 14, 2020.
At least at the peak of the Geminid meteor shower , the intensity of the falling meteor ranges from 86 to 107 meteors per hour for the Indonesian region and the height of the radian point when the cultivation varies from 45 degrees, to be precise on Rote Island, to 65 degrees, on Weh Island.
Not only in Indonesia, Geminid meteor showers can also be witnessed around the world. The special thing is not only that, the United States Antarctic Agency (NASA), as quoted by VOA news, estimates that this meteor shower is decorated with up to 150 meteors per hour or the equivalent of two meteors per minute.
Meteor showers also occur during the new moon phase, meaning moonless nights, making it easier to see meteors as they pass through the sky.
"Over time, the intensity of Geminid meteor showers increased. That 50 years ago, Geminids had 15 or 16 meteors per hour. Now, the hourly rate has increased nearly 10 times in recent years," explains Bill Coke, Head of NASA's Meteorid Environment Office.
Observation of this geminid meteor shower will be successful, if the area where you live is free from cloudy clouds so that there is no light pollution caused by lighting, such as in cities.
This natural event is only one of the natural phenomena that took place in early December 2020. After the Geminid meteor shower , Lapan said, there will be the last sighting of an old crescent on December 14. On the same day there was a Total Solar Eclipse in South America, the next day there was the first appearance of a young crescent.
