Six Sentence Story: Star

As soon as I saw the prompt for this week's Six Sentence Story, I knew just the memory I could share.  The prompt:  star.


"Well, how did you like Men in Black?" he asked her, as they drove home from the movie.

As the car turned the corner, the conversation was interrupted by the sight of a very bright shooting star.  As they watched, though, that one bright light was joined by several more, and the UFOs traversed the sky in formation. 

Being logical individuals, yet having been conditioned over the past two hours to believe in aliens, they struggled to make sense of what they were seeing.  When they got home, they turned on the 10:00 news.  


Late word from the Pentagon says it was a Russian rocket that crashed into the Pacific Ocean, with debris possibly spreading over Western Washington.

Thanks for lively imaginations, and logical explanations.

  1. MIB was a fun movie. My mind would have jumped to aliens, too, if I'd seen the lights in the sky that night.

    1. It was such a strange sight to see, especially since we had just watched the movie.

  2. Loved all the MIB movies and I know for shure, if I was a witness of something simular, I would think UFO too... But, never seen anything like that. Not even a shooting star even.

    1. You haven't seen a shooting star? Is the Perseid meteor shower visible where you are? It might be worth staying up late one night in August to see a shooting star! :-)

  3. That was quite a coincidence. How spectacular to see that. I'm sure the movie prompted you to think extra-terrestrially. Thanks for sharing the news clip, as well.

    1. It was a coincidence! We knew it couldn't actually be ET, but it was just so strange! I was glad I thought to look on youtube for the news clip--and glad to find it there!

  4. Wow, that would have been pretty amazing to witness! Great story! And it always leaves you wondering if our government was telling the truth!!

  8. nice true six and multi-media too!
    have not ever seen such a sight that, surely would have been interesting, especially before the 'explanation'. (lol... me? skeptic of official explanations?!! no way!)
    Given the amount of artificial things we've sent into orbit, it's surprising that this kind of thing doesn't happen more often.
    fun Six

  9. Yes, this is a great six sentence story. Luckily most of the junk in space does burn up before crashing or for some reason avoids built up areas!

    1. Yes, most does burn up before impact, or hits the oceans instead of land.

  10. I'm another one who loved MIB and having just seen it I would have been convinced it was aliens but then I've always wanted there to be aliens! Growing up in Michigan there was an incidence with "swamp gas".

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
