WHITE CIRCLES WERE ABOVE THE CLOUDS. AFTER THEY WERE GONE, CRICKETTS STARTED CHIRPING AND THE SKY BECAME CLEAR, CRYSTAL CLEAR. TWO LARGE STARS WERE VISABLE WHERE THEY WERE NOT BEFORE. I WATCHED FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES. I AM A 54YR. OLD FEMALE. IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION. ONE OTHER THING. I DID NOT GO OUT WITH THE DOGS THE NIGHT BEFORE, BUT A STRANGE THING. I NOTICED ONE OF THE DUAL OUTSIDE LIGHTS HAD COME ON, BUT, WHEN I REACHED FOR THE SWITCH TO SHUT THEM OFF, THEY WERE ALREADY OFF. I TURNED THE SWITCH TO THE ON POSITION AND THEY WENT OFF ON THE NEXT MORNING WHEN I TURNED THE SWITCH OFF.
