しし座流星群 – Leonid Meteor Shower

I couldn’t see the Leonid Meteor Shower. For some reason, I was looking towards the South East sky full of clouds. I only could see the hazy moon.

夜空を見ながらジッとしていたら、自分が動いているんだと気づいてしまいました。いえ、私が発見したわけではなく、もちろん、アインシュタインが「相対性理論」ですでにお話しされてます。ただ、地球上でジッとしていても、秒速 1280 km もの超スピードで宇宙を動いているっていう事実、すごくないですか?
While I was looking at the night sky, I realized that I was moving even though my body was completely still. Of course, I didn’t come up with such a great notion myself. Einstein already wrote about it in his papers on “Relativity.” It’s an awe inspiring feeling that we move 800 miles per second while doing nothing.
