Something Mysterious in the Cosmos

Meanwhile back on earth, the party was beginning to get a little out of hand. Mira and Rigel were still sitting outside staring up at the sky.
“Are you sure you don’t want to go back to the party?” Rigel asked.
Mira sighed. “I don’t see why you want to. It’s not as fun as you said it would be.”
“Well, that’s because you’re out here and not having a good time inside.”
“Rigel, it’s crazy in there! The music is so loud, I’m lucky my ears didn’t explode, and half of your friends are drunk.”
“Well…I’m sorry you’re not having a good time. I just thought you would like to get out and have some fun since you just moved here.”
“That’s okay, really. But hey, don’t let me stop you from having fun.”
But Rigel just stood there staring back up at the stars. Suddenly a bright light flashed across the sky, and it was followed by a loud BOOM a few seconds later. Both Mira and Rigel jumped.
“What in the world was that!?”
“Maybe you were right, Mira. Maybe there really is something out there!”
