Just spent the weekend up north in the woods up in the mountains. Clean air, no clouds at night. At about 4AM roughly, I was out on the back deck, looking up at the stars. Zillions... I was sitting there thinking of things, the big picture and all, when I see a small dot making its way across the sky. I figure its a Satellite. Usually difficult for me to see them right on, normally I have to look slightly off center to see it clearly, (night vision trick). I am watching it pass over, when I notice a star 'near' it is moving also. I think, no way... Goofy things go through my mind. How can this be? The second one I almost missed and I did have to look at it off-center. Yep, the two of them were making a trek accross the early morning skies.
Found out a few hours later that it was indeed the Shuttle coming up on the station for a docking.
My first to see both in the same location.
Mind you, the thought if it possibly being the SR-71 being followed by a shiny disc sounded pretty wild..
