…encounters of the strange 2

On location in Wellington Ohio on 9/26/2013

Meteors abound. This one was a strange site: it came in low and fast right above us and was colored red and brass. It left a thin smoke trail and was silent: as all of them are. It seemed unusually low and vanished as fast as it arrived. I had never seen a meteor like this before: it did not look like an ordinary space rock like most – it rather resembled burned-up space debris: brass color with glowing red on half of it. Strange…

I am the worst digital artist of the Century, but this doctored photo of the observing site shows how it looked. The sky was dark when it happened: looking Northeast @ 41deg N.

I have seen a lot of strange things up there over the years, especially since the beginning of the 1980’s “Star Wars” initiative.

Now, where did I put that tin foil hat…
