Turkish Space Agency Announces the Mystery of Green Light in the Sky

After the green light seen in the sky last night in Istanbul and many cities, everyone said, "Did a meteor fall?" He started asking questions. The highly anticipated response came from the Turkish Space Agency (TUA). TUA stated that a meteor emitting green light was displayed at many points in Turkey.

In the statement made by TUA, "A meteor shining green light was seen in the sky at various points in Turkey last night. These celestial bodies can be observed in many different colors in the atmosphere due to their chemical structure.

Meteors collide with a large number of air molecules when they enter the Earth's atmosphere. These collisions eject the particle's outer layers, creating a vapor of sodium, iron, and magnesium atoms. Meteor color depends on whether metal atom emissions or air plasma emissions dominate.

The color of many meteorites is caused by light emitted by metal atoms (blue, green, and yellow) in them and light emitted by atoms and molecules in the air (red).

Metal atoms emit light as in sodium lamps: sodium (Na) atoms emit an orange-yellow light, iron (Fe) atoms emit a yellow light, magnesium (Mg) emit a green dominant light. Ionized calcium (Ca+) atoms, atmospheric nitrogen (N2) and oxygen atoms (O) and molecules can be seen in a purple hue while emitting a red light.” it was said.
