Earlier that evening, I was observing an extremely unusual and bright star or planet in the midnight sky. It was between 12:00 and 12:30. The star/planet was north, north-east, between two trees, kind of low in the sky at about a 45 degree angle. The object was so bright and I don't remember seeing anything like that in that part of the sky. I got the binoculars, and through the binocs, the object appeared elongated, like it was "dripping" trails or beams or something, and it also seemed to be extended, as in, it was a long object, something extended behind it. It was bright, I mean brilliant, white, blue, red, green, all at once. I had Jim come and look at it but he said it just looked like a star to him.
I did some research on-line; there were reports of seeing a similar object in roughly the same part of the sky. I checked astronomy sites: it could have been Jupiter. I will look again tonight to see if it's there again; according to astronomy sites it should be.
Then I visit Mike Clelland's hidden experience blog today and find this: owl and the full moon:
Last night I saw a lone owl, was absolutely magical. I was in the Tetons alone, and I was sleeping out under the stars in one of the most beautiful meadows imaginable.Indeed!
