Lights in the sky
Did you look out in the north-northeast sky tonight at 7:23 p.m. to see the two Iridium satellite flares? Hope and I were the only two in the house excited enough to bundle up and drive over to the parking ramp near our house. I guess Peggy was semi-excited, too. She jumped in the van so we took her along. At exactly 7:23 we looked up in the sky and saw two bright lights next to the Big Dipper. They shone for about 6 seconds and then it was over. I wasn't sure how many degrees up the lights would be so I decided the top level of the parking ramp would be a good spot for viewing but I guess that wasn't necessary. Gary stepped out on the deck and there they were.
