One of the great spinoffs of this hobby is just being able to kick back and look up at the night sky. Maybe even have a little sip of something too.

Some nights the sky is almost breathtaking with its number of stars and often many falling (shooting?) stars.

I remember one particular night, many years ago, out from Leonora, that I was lucky enough to see a massive shooting star. It was like those pictures of meteorites that we have all seen, with a huge glowing ball and a long tail of sparks. It lasted for several seconds.

As yet I have not had any Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but have seen a couple of things that weren’t easy to explain.
