On the way to work this morning I saw a very cool shooting star. There was some light in the east, just before sunrise and I saw a large, green ball of light that looked pretty low in the sky falling from east to west. I was listening to a new favorite song by Josh Groban--"Weeping" and slowed way down to watch it. Last time I saw something like that I was watching it so closely I didn't notice there were mule deer in the road and had to stop very fast! I didn't hit any of them but it taught me to still pay attention to my driving.
The skies here are so clear we have a great view of the night sky. Once in a while I see shooting stars (or meteorites...but I prefer shooting stars) and we can see the Space Station. On a full moon night you can see the reflection of the moon in the Colorado River, 2000 feet below the park.
