Time Out says

The Perseids meteor shower, also known in Spain as 'Las Lágrimas de San Lorenzo' (The Tears of Saint Lawrence), is the most intense meteor shower of the year. The best time to watch a meteor shower is in the hours immediately before dawn. This year, the moon will set early in the morning, leaving a dark sky at the perfect moment to watch for shooting stars. We can expect up to 50 shooting stars per hour. Out at sea, far from the light pollution of the city, the show should be spectacular. You'll meet at 4am to get out to sea and enjoy the show before sunrise (about 7.30am), returning to port about 8am after the seeing the unforgettable sight of the sun rising out of the sea. As a reward for getting up so early to experience this astronomical phenomenon, free cava will be served during the trip.

Meeting point: S/V Gemini, Port Olimpic, Moll de la Marina, Amarre (berth/slip) 4816
