So, I'm pretty sure I just watched a star die.
And then come back to life.
But anyway. In the corner of my eye, I see this big twinkling light outside of my window in the sky. At first I thought it was this meteor that was supposed to pass through our area a few hours ago, but it wasn't moving. It looked like it was moving, but I think that's because I was staring at it so long. So then I thought it was a UFO! But that didn't last too long. Lol.
It looked like a burst of light, a few times the size of a normal star. It had little tints of orangeish-red color, and some blue and another color I oddly can't identify... o.O I've read stuff like this before, in books where they're trying to describe a color not known to man. I'm like, how can you not generalize a color? ROYGBIV, it's not hard! But then there's this star outside my window, and I can't tell if it was a purply, greenish, or yellow color. Maybe blue, I don't know, it was a really pretty color. Mostly it's orange though. Like in this article about dying stars with jellyfish rings (I know, it's weird).
So after looking at it for nearly an hour now (bed is for wimps!) it's gotten significantly smaller. It went from obvous-shiny-sparkly-thing-in-the-sky to a pin prick of twinkling light. And then it finally completely disappeared.
And now it's back. I think the clouds just got in the way, hard to tell, but it's still going in all of it's sparkly orange glory, just tinier. I wish I could stay up to watch it completely vanish, but alas I have school tomorrow :( And even worse, it's a pointless class I'm taking for extra units (and FAFSA cash, shhh lol) at freakin' 9 a.m.
