I am wishing on a star


Do not miss tonight the falling stars, called Perseides, that culminate from 11 to 13 August in the northern hemisphere. Hundred `stars` per hour will fall tonight, creating a stunning phenomeno that is visible especially in dark areas by naked eye. Tonight there will be no bright moon in the sky and thus the night is ideal for the observation of Perseides named after the constellation Perseus since they appear from this direction. The best time for observation is, towards the east, just after midnight and before dawn. Do not forget to make a wish when the stars fall!
