Dusseldorf Comes to Mitzpe Ramon

We went out tonight with a nice group of three couples from Dusseldorf, Germany. The temperature and wind again conspired to keep us quite cold, as you can see in the photo below. The moon is waxing full, so we are getting close to Pesach.

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.
