What did I learn on the UFO hunt last night?
That phones have cool sky apps that make it possible to hold it up to the sky and see constellations--wicked awesome! (Google Sky Map for Android).
I learned that nightvision is very cool to see the sky and the mountains around us in a creepy green light.
I also learned that a woman's talent for being able to fish around in her purse in the dark and feel the shape of items to pull out the preferred object should be termed "Sack Stroking."
Okay, it's not normal to sky hunt with me. We get a bit sidetracked with some insane conversations, huddled in blankets and sling-back chairs, studying the velvet sky and listening to a hoot owl in the desert.
I did try to get some shots of Julie and I and our adopted "kid brother" from our POE team. I also learned something else last night--that taking nightvision shots at night is stabbing in the dark. Three tries-- (I swear, we all have whole faces)
