We should have heeded to the experts when they said that the full moon would make it difficult to see all but the very brightest of the meteors of the Perseid meteor shower this weekend, but we didn’t. Determined to catch a glimpse of this spectacular phenomenon we stayed up late and headed out into what we thought would be the vast darkness of the countryside to stare up into the night sky. Instead we were were greeted by our own shadows cast by a glorious full moon.

But we have no regrets because we got to enjoy a beautiful full moon in all its splendor lighting up the night sky. Read more about other meteor showers still to come this year here.
