One of my husband's best friends (Mikro's godfather) got a new job nearby and took an apartment locally, so we now are lucky to see him more often. Last night, after we all went out for coffee together, we stood outside my house staring up at the amazingly clear post-hurricane sky. There seemed to be many more stars visible than usual. Wonder if that's because there is less light pollution with the lingering power outages? Earlier, from the restaurant parking lot, we had seen the International Space Station arc overhead. Now, we were treated to the sight of several meteors falling. Mikro was thrilled! His first space rock sightings! We also saw Jupiter and Cassiopeia.
