The Tears of Sant Llorenç

The Llàgrimes de Sant Llorenç, also known as the Tears of San Lorenzo, or Perseids, can currently be observed across the Mediterranean skies. The sky is almost moonless this week and with a bit of luck and a fair amount of patience, meteoroid showers could be seen in the early hours of this morning. According to AEMet (Agencia Estatal de Meteorología), the Spanish national meteorological service, weather conditions were perfect here in the Mediterranean basin and in particular, above the skies of Mallorca. Shooting star watchers could have seen dozens, possibly even hundreds of meteors per hour. No telescopes nor binoculars were required to catch a glimpse of this annual phenomenon which is expected to continue over the next few days. Of course it helps if one happens to live in a rural area, away from too much light pollution.

On the subject of the weather forecast, AEMet has issued a Yellow Alert for this afternoon when heavy downpours are predicted for some parts of Mallorca, mainly in some southern areas of the island. Better have your brolly on stand-by.
