I live in the boonies, which is why we have the University's telescope at our house. My wife, for her astronomy classes, occasionally holds night time observing sessions at our house. When we turn off our lights, it is DARK, except in two directions near the horizon where there are some city lights.We watched the Leonids from the back yard - quite a show. We watched Hale-Bopp from the back yard, for night after night.When I was a kid, I had a trashy 4 inch reflector. One night, after setting up on the patio, I looked into the eyepiece, and I was looking right at an Agena booster stage that was in orbit. It was only in view a few seconds, but there was no mistaking it. I suppose it has long since re-entered.
