7th July  cloudiness  cool morning


        
Today, July 7th is TANABATA, in Japan.
This festival is based on a Chinese legend, in which Kengyuu (the star Alter) meets Orihime (the star Vega) only once a year on this day over the Milky Way.
People celebrate this day by putting up big branches of bamboo with colourful decorations at home.
People also make a wish and hang a strip of paper with their wish written on it.
We can see the Milky Way in Kanazawa city tonight?
