I Had A Rare Treat On 195 This Past Weekend
I've talked many times about my love of looking at the stars and the night sky. Knowing that, you'll understand why something that happened this past weekend thrilled me.
I was driving home from spending the day with family on 195 on Saturday night. It was a crystal clear night and, being the first quarter in Moon phases, very dark.
Actually, let me back up a step.
It was only about an hour earlier that I was getting into the car while my brother-in-law was carrying my almost 2-year-old niece, that I pointed out how clear and bright the stars were.
The three of us spent a few moments enjoying the view and searching for recognizable constellations and planets, and got back in the car.
It was kind of a cool moment for me, seeing my niece look up with a sense of wonder in her eyes, much like I still have to this day.
So as I was heading home a little while later, what felt like a normal night time drive on 195 turned into a thrill when a bright, slow burning meteor streaked across the sky directly in my line of sight.
Of course, it wasn't my first time seeing a shooting star, staking out meteor showers is something that I've been doing since childhood. But seeing one outside of a usual meteor shower window is a rare treat.
So what are the unexpected things that still give you a thrill to this day? Comment below and let us know!
