Dancing in the Moonlight (and Starlight)
Take a peak outside at the billions of stars splattered over the black summer night. If you want a meteor show, the Perseids Meteor Shower is visible from July 23 to August 22, peaking August 13-14. If you're more of a moon person, the next full moon is August 2. I try never to miss a full moon, but I don't do as much star gazing as I used to--though I aim to make a point of seeing the Perseids Meteor Shower this year. These days I spend most summer nights in air conditioned-comfort, but time was when the sultry nights beckoned me. My friends and I dragged Main with the tunes blasting from the radio, gathered at the Dairy Queen, drove along country roads in a pickup truck, and swam in the lake outside of town, usually in our underwear, though not always. We did our share of star gazing and dancing in the moonlight, too. I'll be away from my blog for a couple of weeks for vacation. Enjoy the video and see you at the end of July.
