Tonight, sailing in the centrum of the sea , we can observe one of the most famous nature phenomena: St Lawrence ‘s shower. This is a popular name of the Perseids’s shower. This meteor shower gets the name “Perseids” because it appears to radiate from the constellation Perseus. An observer in the Northern Hemisphere can start seeing Perseid meteors as early as July 23, when one meteor every hour or so could be visible. During the next three weeks, there is a slow build-up. It is possible to spot five Perseids per hour at the beginning of August and perhaps 15 per hour by August 10. The Perseids rapidly increase to a peak of 50-80 meteors per hour by the night of August 12/13 and then rapidly decline to about 10 per hour by August 15. For that, tonight around 10,00 pm we’are going to lie in the upper deck, in the solarium of Southern Cross . We’re going to stop sailing and well anchor in the centrum of the Mediterranean sea, far away of the coast, where lights doesn’t exist. We were ready to enjoying a wonderful spectacle in the sky.
