Shooting Stars Might Not Be What You Think They Are
Have you ever laid in a field of grass with your hands behind your head, closed your eyes and wished upon a shooting star?
There was only one time in my life that I saw a shooting star. I was in the car, late at night with my husband when he shouted for me to look to my right and as soon as I turned my head, I saw it. In that moment, I wished that he'd ask me to marry him. He did the following month.
Being lucky enough to see a shooting star is an amazing experience. Unfortunately, that star I wished upon and the one you wished upon if you've ever done such a thing might not be exactly what we thought it was.
Apparently when astronauts go poo while they're on a space mission, they eject their waste into space. That waste burns up in the atmosphere and appears as a shooting star to the rest of us on earth.
Um, yeah. About that wish ...
