Meteor Galore

For those of you who love gazing at the stars, Wednesday night is the perfect night for you. It's time for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. This star show is amazing! I am so lucky to live and breathe in a not-affected-by-L.A.-smogged-area, that watching and appreciating the stars every night is possible.

I think this is a good chance to take a short drive to Inspiration Point, bust out a lawn chair and a bottle of wine and stay up all night! The star show is expected to be at it's best between Midnight and 5 am, (in North America, anyway). I'll bring by Ipod, too, and listen to Patsy Cline's Walkin' After Midnight.

Having to go to work on Thursday will be no biggie, I'll have a good excuse to enjoy nature at such a wonderful moment!

Awww... I'm so jealous! Unfortunately, I live in a neighborhood where it's not safe to be out after 10 -- let alone after midnight. And the stars are barely visible over the streetlights here & we have no car to escape in. Meh. I'm wishing you clear skies & pleasant breezes tonight, though :)

OOOh, a friend told me about this! Unfortunately I was on the road that evening and too tired afterward to head to some hill to see it... I really miss a proper stargazing night...In the Delta it was so clear you could see the Milky way! I hope you had a nice time :)

Here, in Rome, I saw one big! So beautiful, romantic (I hope it wasn't an airplane in fire). Great blog, nice post, funny PHOTO! :D Ciao, Italo.
