A Magical Night

Rocket Launch 2

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!

  1. What fun! Great tale,Tricia.

    I was on the freeway once and the most amazing sunset hit the snow on the mountains. Everyone just stopped,got out of their cars, and looked up. I remember that sense of community awe, that awareness that we are very small, the comfort in knowing there are still some things that make us drop everything and stop to take notice.

    I laughed at your ladies running out with wet hair. Ah, Southern California! We can’t really do that here, it will soon freeze to your head. 🙂

      Lol on the freezing hair IB! You pinned it exactly that is neat to know there are things that just awe the heck out of us. Good to be reminded too this time of year that miracles can and do happen.

  4. On the southern east coast we had a fire truck with sirens blazing heading up and down our side streets with Santa hanging off the side (I think he had a bottle of Jack Daniels in hand.) That’s about as close as we get to extraterrestrial sightings in my neck of the woods! 😀

    Interesting photos. Space X really should have given people a heads up, but I doubt they considered how it would look from the ground.

    The main stream media says it was a rocket launch and they are liars! If you or anyone thinks this is a rocket launch you need to stop being so gullible! Stop believing the LIES! And No, I really do not know what it is, but it is not a rocket launch I assure you! Who’s doing your thinking?
