    I once traveled about 100 miles as fast as I could go on any road that
    looked liked it'd take me where I needed to go to line up the moon with a
    distant large weather balloon. After I got my pictures I tried to start my
    old push button Rambler but couldn't!  It was only then that I tried to
    figure out where I had ended up. Trust me, as far as you can get this in
    Iowa, I was in the middle of nowhere!
    I wonder if anyone has ever seen a iridium satellite flare (or any
    satellite, flare or not) crossing the (as yet) dark side of the moon?
    I suppose that'd be awesome to see with binocs.  Maybe it would be worth
    planning a trip to see such a thing.
