Piqued Night: Stars Shower: Perseids

Piqued Night: Cielos de Lanzarote

Piqued Night

Stars Shower: Perseids

Explanation

The Tears of San Lorenzo arrive, the most anticipated shower of stars of the year, also known as Perseids because their radiant are found in this constellation. Ideal night, the Moon will come out late, so we will have a good time to enjoy the show. We are also joined by Jupiter and Saturn, the deep sky objects of the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. We propose you a radiant night under the stars, hoping that there will be many shooting. For dessert, a few rays of moon with craters of gruyére and seas of chocolate lava. You dare?
