05 Feb Meteor
5 February 2016
Last night while steering in the dark across the tranquil ocean, the sky was suddenly lit up. Immediately everyone thought of a thunderstorm. But from behind a cloud we saw a meteor flashing by. In a straight line behind us, where it splashed apart in a yellow flash. It took maybe 1 to 2 seconds, but it seemed much longer. We hear a lot of: “Wow”, “Cool” and “What was that?” coming from the aft deck. It seemed so close, but in reality it’s of course very far away. But still very special!
