So, the name of this rhetoric spectacle that occurs every year when there are whites of dust that come from pieces of shapes, or asteroids, and striking with the pride of our planet.
So, an observer can see a meteor every two minutes, on average, if it stands in a "dark" zone without light pollution of towns, and with a clear vision. "The water of the Geminids can be seen in both sides, in the North Hemisphere, this is always seen (the rise is higher above the horizon). Although it is in clear places, in the province of Buenos Aires It will also be monitored. " a Clarin Facundo Rodríguez, rehabilitation doctor at Córdoba Ritzie Theater.

In the Planetarium, it will & # 39; advising Rodríguez, the very good situation to see the water "lie down and turn your head to the north. If we are standing, it is better to stand behind you to reubalt the Games, just so you can see the star of the stars, because from that time they were born. If we do not focus on anything else, we'll do it; see them leaving. "At the San Juan theater, however, the exhibition will be full."

Both recycled within the Anti Light Pollution (LPIs) Initiatives of the European STARS4ALL project. Your goal is "protects the right of a dark sunny and expresses the negative effects of artificial light ".
Spectators of rhetoric in the Northern Hemisphere may even be seen by critics and sent to their International Meteorological Organization (IMO), The levels of activity of these stars are counted. In the 2018 Geminids, the Canary Islands Experience Institute (IAC) and the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM), will cooperate with its " project of Star Star scientists accountant scientists. This initiative, funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), was made there is a handbook to allow any citizen to cooperate in these accounts with cell phone applications (not available in Argentina).
"Between the waters of the stars this man has a special place, it is not born from a comet passage, the Geminids come from a small, small asteroid, Phaethon (3200), which was found in 1983, "says the Argentine engineer.
In 2010, a team with NASA STEREO's researchers found a team with Dave Jewitt, a researcher at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) that Phaeton had increased his dignity. They were designated as a "rocky comet", complex between asteroid and comet. Phaethon will come into the sun every 1.4 years, like a comet. The heat that gets "burn" is a & # 39; Leave the dust that covers the rocky surface and makes it very hot at 700 ° C.
