Post title was originally going to be "when you wish upon a star." Inspired by an event tonight where Mrs VVB and I were sitting on the verandah gazing out to sea when there was a flash of light that then descended relatively slowly into the ocean.
Not a shooting star - which we get a few of - but rather a piece of space debris burning up on re-entry.
We wondered to ourselves, is it OK to wish upon a piece of space debris? Does it still work the same as if it were a star?
Let me know your thoughts.
In the meantime, here's that classic band The Move with Night of Fear. Loved it then, still do.
