two for one (Blue Mountains)

There was shouting and hoopla coming from outside. Steve uttering incomplete fragments again. Risa and I jumped up, leaving our SLO walk-thru, to stand between the observatories. Nice sky! The Milky Way was spectacular. Then she saw it. The International Space Station blazing out of the west. I noticed it was already dimming. And just then, a fantastic delta Aquarid fireball heading through the northern sky. Wow! It left a long train of sparks! Two for one. The ISS meanwhile, now overhead, faded into our shadow.
