PEDRA és un Bòlid i PEDRA va de Bòlit.

Autobiographical piece inspired by the evolution of the use of the word ‘bòlido’.



 

In astronomy, a bolide (from the grec βολίς, missile) is a very bright meteor, characterized by looking like a fireball and creating a luminous trace, produced by the entry into the Earth’s atmosphere of a meteoroid with a mass of the order of tons , which generally explodes before reaching the ground and produces an appreciable rumble

A bolide has the appearance of a sphere of fire. The luminous groove that it leaves as it passes through the atmosphere persists for a time greater than tens of seconds and can be several minutes or even half an hour. It comes accompanied by acoustic phenomena such as an explosion and sometimes fragments of the meteor can be found on the ground that resist complete volatilization as they pass through the atmosphere.
