Had our cheapy Mead 114mm reflector out in the backyard last night to do a little star gazing with the family, and just as I laid onto Jupiter, I saw a satellite zip by doing an almost transit of it. Made my night even though my daughter still can't look into the eyepiece without bumping the telescope off... :roll:

Anyone else had neat things happen while looking up?

Great post James! Yeah sometimes neat things happen while viewing threw the telescope. I've noticed things like that only a few times in my entire life. Nice to know others get to experience things that cool from time to time.

I saw a meteor coming directly at me one time for about 3 seconds it was similarly cool.

Not 'while' but I have had my photos used for:

1) The image for the end of a tv series
2) On a Zara T Shirt
3) Then got a part acting because of it
4) Then the cover of a book

Just because I photographed the Moon, neat eh!?
