Skywatch Friday - Slalom

These orbs are part of a slalom track for planes. Air force pilots need to become good at this before they can apply for a space shuttle licence. I guess to make sure they don't hit any planets or moons when floating around in space.
Ok so I need to get out more. My cold has gone so I will get back on the streets with my fresh eyes.
Have a fun filled weekend.
Don't forget to visit skywatchers around the globe.

I remember visiting London in the 90´s. I stayed in a cheap hostel and they showed a Woody Allen movie from TV to a full crowd that was packed in TV room. It was a "sci-fi"-movie where people had strange vibrations from a big ball called Orb. Everybody laughed like there was no tomorrow.

I just remembered this after seeing this and reading the story. Thanks!
