As we got a bit older, we stayed out a bit later.
There was nothing like hanging out in the dark with your pals.
Yes, we even used to play kick the can, or some equivalent that morphed into our own neighborhood game.
Then, we'd settle down and listen to some tunes, laying in the grass and looking up into the sky, watching the stars, and occasionally a shooting star. My first one was so exciting, and I still get that excited when I see a shooting star to this day (or should I say "night").
It is the best feeling ever.....
Whenever I see or hear about an upcoming meteor shower, I start planning in advance and hoping the weather is with us, because it is a chance to see a whole lot of shooting stars!
Looking at my 2014 calendar from The Last Green Valley, which is loaded with all sorts of interesting nature facts, I see here is our chance! This coming Monday, July 28, the Delta Aquarid Meteor Shower is on display! I am warning you now, so you can plan to get some rest ahead of time to view this (or have a lot of coffee ready to go)!

I am so lucky to live in The Last Green Valley, without a ton of night time lighting, which makes sky viewing superb!
