In these days of August, a crucial dilemma presents itself. How can we know if what we see in the sky is a Perseids or the wake of a North Korean missile? A dilemma that is especially important for those who are going to be on vacation on the island of Guam, which, by the way, is one of the places where you can best appreciate this astronomical spectacle.
Obviously, not all missiles are the same but, usually, the stele that usually leaves. Also, the missile moves at a significantly slower speed, and will always be seen at lower altitude.
So, you know, if you see something “slow” and zig ague ante plowing the sky to not too high … Run! It can be a “gift” from Kim Jong-un.
