Hale Bopp memories

There’s going to be an eclipse of the moon soon – 28/9/2015. Cosmic events are so enigmatic – possible to observe certain movements and shadows but the enormity of the universe is just unfathomable. I remember taking my dog out for night time walks deliberately on routes where I could see the Hale Bopp comet before it left our horizon. There was something really enlivening and optimistic about the sight of that visitor. The sky does that – it is so inspiring. The light show we sometimes are priviledged to see, the colours phenomenal. When Hale Bopp finally disappeared I felt a sense of loss, quickly followed by – what else is there out there? to be seen and understood, like the up coming lunar event and hopefully a cloud free night sky.
