A Meteor, Pleiades Star Cluster and Mars Over an Hermitage in Mértola


| | | |

When spending a few nights enjoying the wonders of a starry sky, you can suddenly be surprised with a sporadic meteor or a fireball. Don’t forget to make a wish, or simply scream “wooow” and smile to the sky above with your friends or loved ones. The image shows a bright golden one captured in a single frame near Ermida de Nossa Senhora do Amparo in @darkskyalqueva Mértola territory. Above it is visible part of the winter Milky Way while at the center Pleiades star cluster is shining in blue. At the top right corner, the bright orange hue light belongs to planet Mars.

PT:  Ao passar algumas noites apreciando as maravilhas de um céu estrelado, o leitor pode ser surpreendido repentinamente com um meteoro esporádico ou uma bola de fogo. Não se esqueça de fazer um pedido ou simplesmente gritar “uau” e sorrir para o céu com seus amigos, pois são sempre momentos surpreendentes. A imagem mostra um meteoro dourado e  brilhante captado em um único disparo perto da Ermida de Nossa Senhora do Amparo no território Dark Sky® Alqueva em Mértola. Acima é visível parte da Via Láctea de inverno, enquanto no centro o aglomerado de estrelas Pleiades brilha em tons de azul. No canto superior direito, a luz laranja brilhante pertence ao planeta Marte.
