I had just moved to Joshua Tree and was amazed at the number of stars I could see at night, so every evening I would sit on my patio and star gaze. One night I saw what I thought was an exceptionally bright airplane. It moved at the same speed as the other planes I could see in the night sky, but it had no blinking lights and was twice as bright as other planes. As I was thinking to myself “what is with this off plane,” it shot straight out into space in half a second! If I had blinked I would have missed it! Anyone who has lived out here for a while has seen things in the sky.
