On 10th August it's Saint Lawrence here and this day is also known as the Night of the Shooting Stars.
Looking at the sky (if it's not cloudy!) it's possible to see falling stars. An old tradition says that each time we see a falling star, we have to express a desire and it will come true.
It didn't happen to me yet during the past years, but I'll try again: never say never! Dreamer

Of course you can see the falling stars here all through the month of August. Its quite beautiful!

I have a telescope that is just perfect for this type of event. I can't wait to take it out and use it again this year.
