On a warm evening in July, Jesse decided to head out to look at the stars.  Stepping out the door, she could tell that the Mercury was raising, not unusual for this time of the month.  

She was not going to let a little bit of heat stop her from capturing the rare sight of the NEOWISE comet passing by.  With her camera and tripod in one hand and a Milky Way chocolate bar and blanket in the other, she head across the open field to find the perfect spot.  Oh how this field brought back memories. Remembering the time when she was a child trying to dig her way to China, she snickered at how naive she was back then.

She walked about 64 feet when she looked up and was amazed at how bright Jupiter was.  On the horizon, she noticed at least 88 to 100 fireflies twinkling in a small tree almost like a string of lights.  As she was setting up her camera on the tripod a ladybug landed on her arm.  While most children would sing the lady bug song, Jesse mother taught her to recite the Alphabet until the lady bug flew away. Whatever letter it would fly away on would be the first letter of her first child name.  In memory of her mother did it by the time she got to Q it flew away only to return again. The next time it flew away on the letter Z. “Well it looks like I may just have twins.” She chuckled to herself.

Just moments later she caught sight of the comet. With the buzzing sounds of the mosquitoes surrounding her, she took some time lapsed of the comet hoping to make its tail prevalent in her shots.  After about an hour and one chocolate bar later, she packed up and headed back home looking forward to a cone of Lunar Cheesecake she had picked up earlier for this occasions.
