博利德。罕見的明亮流星照亮了挪威的夜空

人們看到一顆巨大的罕見流星照亮了挪威的夜空。

這顆流星--被稱為長流星--是如此之大,如此之亮,從整個國家的大部分南部地區都可以看到它!這顆流星被稱為長流星。

據挪威流星網稱,它在海平面以上40英里左右的大氣層中燃燒起來。

它是一年一度的北方金牛座流星雨的一部分,專家們說它可以產生明亮的火球。

周六晚上,當這顆異常明亮的流星照亮天空時,從挪威南部的大部分地區都可以看到。

當這顆流星燃燒起來的時候,一道閃光在天空中閃爍着多種顏色,讓很多人不解,不知道那會是什麼。

目擊者Per Skram告訴挪威廣播公司:"它突然變得很亮,所以我起初以為是一輛開着遠光燈的汽車。但後來我抬頭看了看天空,發現有一道巨大的光線射過天空,後面還有一條長長的藍色尾巴。"

事實上,人們對這道亮光感到非常困惑,以至於許多人打電話給警察!

挪威流星網的莫滕-比勒特解釋說。"它的威力非常大,在大氣層中完全燒毀"。

該組織表示,許多人將這顆流星與目前活躍的獅子座流星雨聯繫在一起,然而這顆特殊的流星來自另一個流星雨--北部的金牛座流星雨。

"它補充說:"金牛座產生的流星沒有獅子座那麼多,但金牛座偶爾會產生非常強大的流星,比如這顆。

栓塞和流星之間的區別是什麼?

流星是落入地球大氣層的太空岩石,邊走邊發熱。

岩石變得如此之熱,以至於它周圍產生了可見的光芒--這實際上是它的熱量。

因此,我們看到的實際上不是墜落的岩石......而是它周圍的熱量,在天空中飛馳的光芒

然而,沒有必要擔心,我們可能看到的流星幾乎沒有機會擊中地球。

長流星是對特別明亮的流星的一種稱呼,特別是在大氣層中爆炸的流星。


A huge rare meteor has been seen lighting up the night sky in Norway.

The meteor - called a bolide - was so large and bright, it was visible from much of the south of the whole country!

According to the Norwegian meteor network, it burned up in the atmosphere around 40 miles above sea level.

It was part of the annual Northern Taurids meteor shower, which experts say can produce bright fireballs.

The unusually bright meteor was visible from large parts of southern Norway when it lit up the sky on Saturday evening.

As the meteor burnt up, a flash shimmered in multiple colours across the sky, leaving many people puzzled as to what it could be.

Eyewitness Per Skram told Norwegian broadcaster NRK: "It suddenly became bright, so I thought at first it was a car driving on high beam. But then I looked up at the sky and there was a massive light that shot across the sky with a long, blue tail behind it."

In fact, people were so confused by the bright light that many called the police!

Morten Bilet, from the Norwegian Meteor Network explained: "It was very powerful, and burned up completely in the atmosphere."

The organisation said that many people had associated the meteor with the Leonid meteor shower, which is currently active, however this particular meteor came from a different meteor shower - the northern Taurids.

"The Taurids do not produce as many meteors as the Leonids but the Taurids occasionally produce very powerful meteors, like this one," it added.

What is the difference between a bolide and a meteor?

A meteor is space rock that falls into the Earth's atmosphere, heating up as it goes.

The rock gets so hot that a visible glow is created around it - this is actually its heat.

So, what we see isn't actually the falling rock...it's the glowing heat around it, racing across the sky!

However there's no need to worry, the meteors we might see have almost no chance of hitting the Earth.

A bolide is a name given to a meteor that is exceptionally bright, especially ones that explode in the atmosphere.
