On the night 11 by 12 August in the mountains near Barcelona, it will be possible to observe the unique natural phenomenon called «Lágrimas de San Lorenzo», St. Lorenzo tears or simply Shooting Stars.
Every year at this time, the Earth passes through the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle, and then in the sky you can observe the Perseids - the meteors, so named for its appearance on the part of the constellation Perseus. The number of meteors usually reaches 60 per hour, and their speed is 150 thousands of km / h. It is best to see the meteor shower will be in the North-East.
Stars, like large ripe apples August, falling from the sky about once every five minutes, those who managed to see a shooting star, announce the night cries of joy, those who missed - outraged cries of using swear words and "untranslatable local dialect". The main task - to have time to make a wish, although the stars in the night fall so often that you have an unlimited number of attempts to carry out the most cherished dreams.
We recommend to go to the mountains, climb higher, which does not reach the urban electricity light. If you are in Barcelona, you can climb up to the Tibidabo, but ideally to rent a car and go to sleep in a tent on the top of the mountain of Montserrat. This magical night is best done in a place full of magic, and Montserrat is a well-known place of power with very strong energy.
