A very strange and other worldly occurrence happened in Southern California last night. As I was out for a walk with family, we noticed two orbs of light pulsating and slowly moving through the sky like no airplane or helicopter I’ve ever seen. The trail of dust following them literally glowed and we just stood there staring up with mouths wide open.
What was it, Santa Claus getting a jump on the game? Beings from another planet finally making themselves known? Or was the moon about to turn red and stars fall from the sky as the end of times finally comes?
Well, it actually turned out to be rocket launch from an air base a few hours up the road. For a few minutes there though, it really felt magical as I looked around to see half the neighborhood out in the streets, mouths agape and eyes fixed upward. Some ladies even ran out of a salon still in their gowns and hair soaking wet. We all looked at each other in amazement, chattering with excitement and a tad bit of nervousness about what might be happening.
In a weird way it was rather comforting to be experiencing this as a community and be reminded how very insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. All around a pretty cool event!
