There is almost always something unexpected to see in the night sky. Tonight we saw a sudden bright light in the sky, probably a satellite winking overhead, and saw a marvelous, bright meteor that lit up the entire ground around us. It burned red and was gone in a flash, probably a meteor made of iron considering its color. It also gave off some sparks as it shot toward earth. I wish I could order those up on demand, but it's pretty much just the luck of the draw with meteors.
After two hours under the desert sky we were all quite cold and so scurried home, I to a warm bed, an unusual place for me to end up so early, but I was tired from all of the Pesach shopping we had done earlier in the day in Beer-Sheva.
