I looked out of the back window late last night, just to check if the sky was clear enough for watching the Perseid meteor shower, and was rewarded almost immediately by seeing two very bright shooting stars, one after the other. Sort of thing that makes you laugh with delight! A lot of the streetlights around here are switched off at midnight, so out we went, with a blanket and binoculars (tho' we didn't need them), to watch the skies.
When we eventually went back indoors, we stood at the back window for another half hour saying 'One more, then we'll get to bed...'
'Right, after the next one...'
'Maybe just one more...'
