The unexpected comes in many shapes and sizes, life it seems has a way of sneaking a curve ball in when you least expect it. Take for example my experiences last night, one minute I was walking down the street with bags of shopping happily swaying by my side, the next moment I am staring at the sky, fixated.
To set the scene I should state for the record that the time was 10:45pm on an overcast night, Thursday the 27th of November 2013, late last night. Returning home from dinner with friends, after a quick pit stop at the supermarket, I had been simply wandering down Inkerman Street in StKilda (Melbourne, Australia). Hoping to make it home before the heavens opened with more rain.
Being an overcast night there was barely a star in the sky, the odd twinkle that did appear simply highlighted the movement of the rain heavy clouds, revealing the stars light only briefly.
