Lie back and watch the show.

Perseids is in fine form this year not least as we have a new moon this week which will mean there will be no light pollution from the moon which often spoils the show.

The show will peak on Thursday night/Friday morning and up to 100 meteors an hour are predicted, with the highest numbers being seen in the early hours of Friday morning.

Personally I love this show, it makes me tingle, its just so pretty.

So you need a big blanket and cushions on the ground to lie on, with a flask of hot chocolate or a cool glass of fizz (depending on the temperature) and maybe just a little bit of chocolate to while away an hour or two before bed.

I'll be watching too. We're lucky that it's pitch black where we live so we have a nice clear view!

I know this is nothing what so ever to do with Christmas :-)
But watching this over the last few nights is magical. Rain tonight !
