Strange lights hurtle across the night sky and all I do is react, pulling the steering wheel sharply left and right so the headlights flare against trees and fences on either side. Stopping is far from my mind even as I realise there is nowhere to go, but then I do: I stop the car, still staring at the beautiful spectacle above. The lights appear like a vomited chemical reaction as they race from the east, evolving and spreading in crystalline mosaic patterns. What looked like a fluorescent mirage emits textural clues that it is shiny and spikey and solid.
