Throughout the month, stars are seen falling in the dark areas of the country. Although the peak occurs on August 12, when the earth crosses the most densely populated area in the cloud of fragments, by the end of August you are guaranteed an amazing sky. Here is a partial list of activities that continue to take place in the Negev region.
