If you do go out in the street, stand still and spread out something large and bright/light colored. Our neighbors one year waved a flag, but the movement won't show. We can spot our camp because of the configuration and light colors or the carports, but not individuals.
These are not my fuckos.

Perfect time and place to suggest this:

Look up what kind of cool shit you may see in the sky during the burn. ISS, Iridium flares, etc.

"Look guys! A UFO!"

There's also meteors:

Yep. :)

I can spot where I am in 2010, although not which one of the dozen peeps I am in my grouping, precisely. I am definitely going to see if I can remedy that this time.

The time was actually listed in 24-hr notation. If it was PM they would have listed 23:45:40
