It's going to be a short one today, unless the day gets a bit more interesting lol
I'm not sure if you guys heard the news about the Perseid Meteor Shower for this year,
but um basically it happens once a year around about this time, and the moon is bigger and brighter than usual and if you're lucky you can catch some 'falling' stars and make a wish.
The full moon last night was so beautiful, no pictures though crappy iphone lol
I didn't catch any falling stars but I was doing a bit of star gazing out on my balcony. I always look at for Vega , one of the brightest and highest star in the sky. They say Vega and Altair is the story of 牛郎織女 . Very romantic and beautiful story. And that the falling stars represents the tears of Vega if they cannot meet. I like this version better, although the rain version is still pretty.
They never cease to amaze me and its so easy to get lost into them. I know that sounds silly, there's that calm feeling that you get when you just stare into space or nature.
But anyways, there's still a few more days for you guys to try catch your own falling stars, happy star gazing.
