I’m definitely not a professional astronomer but I spend a lot of time gazing at the sky. Last night I was sitting back just enjoying the evening on my patio and I was rewarded with the thrill of seeing a meteor flash across the sky. It was the largest one I have ever seen. It’s glowing head, sparkling blue and green tail took my breath away for all of four seconds. It was magnificent and memorable, I even got my wish in before it disappeared into the dark skies.

Star lore has it that you must BELIEVE in your wish and when you wish upon a star, the star knows whether or not your wish is genuine. There are so many myths and legends surrounding the stars and constellations that as a child I would dream I was riding Pegasus, the winged horse. He took me all through the galaxy in my childhood.

May all YOUR wishes come true.
