My husband recently bought a used astronomy book from a local book seller. In it was the following note:
A note stuck into an astronomy book. It reads:
“Comet West – March 5, 1976
There appeared at the top of the window a very brilliant light and in the instant that it took me to focus, right before me was a brilliantly glowing ball but of a hazy shape. greenish in color and indescribably bright. It seemed to wobble a little which must have been its revolutions and moved with a slightly downward curve then was suddenly gone. Sky was overcast for next few days.”
Your challenge: Use this as part of an opening scene of a story. What is the unusual thing that the writer actually observed? What significance does it hold?
