during the short walk (Blue Mountains)

Weird. A little bit of everything in the brief walk to the house!

Good portions of the sky were clear as I exited the THO. Stars. The Milky Way angling east-west.

Still, I noted clouds. Particularly thick/dark clouds to the south.

Distant layered clouds to the north. Those clouds, over the bay, would periodically fill up with soundless lightning.

Faint aurora above or beyond those north clouds continued.

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a flare, high up. Spotted a rather bright pair of points, above Dubhe, heading north-east. Initially, the right one brightened up to a minus magnitude! There were about a half degree apart.


Looked up satellite and ISS flyovers for this morning. Nothing yet.
