Pennsic Impressions: the ISS

Oh, right, one for the memories list...

msmemory, being the organized person she is, not only noticed the announcements that the ISS was going to be transiting in the evening, she actually noticed the time just before it did so, while we were all sitting around the campfire, and pointed it out to everyone. As the paper said it would, it was roughly at the same height as the moon, moving fairly rapidly across the sky -- right towards it. Of course, Lochleven being the group it is, this led to an entire mob of grown-ups yelling at the sky:

"No -- it's going to hit!"
"Look in front of you! Dive! DIVE!"
"I think it's going to miss..."
"It made it! YAYYYY!"

I really am fond of having a campfire that appreciates the silly...
