Details:
I went out at 2 AM in almost daylight conditions, the landscape was visible in full color, sky was vivid blue and only the brightest stars were visible. The perigee Moon lit the world with its full brightness - and also made the observation of Eta Aquarid meteors unsuccessful. Even some daytime birds were singing as they thought the brightness belongs to the morning. I came back home when the dawn reddened the NE sky part and Moon's brightness faded as it got closer to the horizon.
