Una lluvia de estrellas iluminará los cielos el 12 de agosto — Prepárate

Cielo europeo se poblará de las fugaces Perseidas

Cielo europeo se poblará de las fugaces Perseidas

Esta lluvia de meteoros es una de las más importantes del año, sobre todo para los que vivimos en el hemisferio norte de la Tierra, donde su visibilidad es todavía mayor.

Casi un mes tarda la Tierra en pasar por ese cúmulo de partículas que dejó la suciedad de los cometas que en la medida que se acercan al Sol van desprendiendo el material de la superficie y es así como todos los años la Tierra atraviesa varias órbitas de distintas cometas.

El espectáculo celeste es producido por los pequeños fragmentos de polvo del cometa que chocan con la atmósfera terrestre a 212 mil kilómetros por hora. A dicha velocidad, hasta el fragmento más pequeño genera una estela luminosa al desintegrarse.

La lluvia de meteoritos Perseidas podría ser la más brillante de la historia humana.

Todo esto debido a que la Luna Menguante iluminará un 72% el disco, por lo que impedirá observar con claridad a las estrellas fugaces.

Cada año, las Perseídas iluminan el cielo veraniego -principalmente entre julio y agosto-.

El principal inconveniente a la hora de avistar las perseidas será, un año más, la contaminación lumínica.

Encuentra un lugar con cielo despejado o pocas nubes.

Además, sus estrellas fugaces son las más brillantes y se observan incluso en algunas zonas urbanas.

Otra recomendación importante es el horario para contemplar las lágrimas de San Lorenzo. A continuación van algunos consejos para que podáis ver esta noche la lluvia de perseidas. Los expertos también aconsejan utilizar otros puntos que sirvan como guía en el cielo, tales como las constelaciones de Tauro, la Osa Menor o Andrómeda.

Planeses ha asegurado que, aunque la lluvia de estrellas "dura horas", hay que estar atentos porque existe un tramo concreto -aproximadamente de una hora- en el que se puede observar una acumulación de meteoros. No son aconsejables los telescopios, pues su precisión es vana ante fenómenos tan fugaces como las lluvias de estrellas.

El pico de actividad ocurrirá cerca de las 17:00 (GMT) del 12 de agosto.
