Rainbow smoke

He sat in the observation bubble staring up at the night sky as he reviewed the first day of meetings. Overall? They had gone well but some issues had come up that seriously concerned him. He hoped that there would be more opportunities to voice that concern in the days to come.

An armored vehicle patrolled in the distance but Mike ignored it as he watched the light show, above. Ribbons of light, like rainbow coloured smoke shimmered and stretched across the night sky to become a standing wall of green and red flames. A shooting star crossed the wall and then vanished.

Taking a sip of his drink he sat back and allowed the beauty of the moment wash across his mind and let the days stresses ease. Three days of meetings still lay ahead and there was still much higher to do.


OK, how cool is it to see an astronomical light show from your hotel window while attending a summit on an Internet space game? 

I am sitting in the light of sunrise, writing this and grinning like a fool.

Thank you all for helping get me to this point.

Fly it like you won it

      Not last night but I will try if it repeats tonight. Gotta see if I can make a vine, it’s the movement that makes it special.

    Nice! I don’t think I’ll ever forget the light show we got the night of the end of the first CSM8 summit. Quite spectacular. What colors did you get?
