A husband and wife were up late looking at the night sky with their newly acquired telescope. The husband went to bed, but the wife stayed up and continued to look at the sky with the telescope.

Suddenly, she noticed a brilliant, white orb in the sky, bigger that the (apparent) size of the moon, that appeared to have orange dots imbedded in it. "It was beautiful!."

She went upstairs to get a better look at the object, but the windows were frozen over, so she went downstairs and woke her husband.

She grabbed her binoculars, and watched it retreat in the sky, into outer space, she thought. She saw a "shadow" of it where it had been.
