Sky Watching

  1. Sky Watching- by Sunny
    I stood outside a watchin', those far-off stars in space,
    And noticed that a bunch of them were not stayin' in place.
    They moved 'round real fast, those twinkling little lights,
    So I first thought they might just be, some tiny little sprites.
    But soon the lights they all lined up and rolled across the sky,
    I knew right then, what they had to be, as they reflected off my eye.
    Those lights I saw, were moving slow and one right after the other,
    One would slide over and one would pass by, wobbling a "hello
    brother".
    I knew for sure what they had to be, big twins rolling a leisurely
    pace;
    Those twinkly lights way up in the sky just had to be "Hogs in Space!"

    Well, that said, earlier in the month of Jan., 2009, I was watching
    the tour that Commander Mike Fenke was giving of the ISS
    (International Space Station). It was during the tour that the
    commander opened a window hatch, so that the viewing audience could
    see the Earth. He had no sooner opened the hatch wide, than a bright
    "object" zipped into frame and darted around, changing directions,
    this way and that. Commander Fenke hurriedly closed the hatch. At
    the next portal, same thing. An object moving around outside, near
    the ISS. Gee, I wonder how all that space debris, or ice crystals can
    navigate around the ISS like that, changing course and speed. That's
    pretty darn cool! Maybe someone has jettisoned some toy RC UFOs and
    are just playing around? Trouble is, I wonder how those RCs fly
    without "air". Reckon they are powered by tiny rockets? Or maybe,
    just maybe they were Hogs in space! Doh!
