    Thanks all. You're great. I don't foresee a need for 3D applications. Basically I'm looking for a digital way to do the old fashioned "draw it and frame it." I'll look at the Adobe products...

    This isn'r the latest copy. I have made some slight changes and one was making the extra petal smaller. I wanted to show a falling leaf and tie in the type with the image because to me they lacked a bit...

    somewhere between northern Canada and southern South America.
    How precise.

      Yeah, well, sometime between the end of September and early October is precise too....


      I saw one come in once. It was a huge fireball and it looked like it was coming right at me. Stopped the truck on the side of the road and just watched. Wishing I had a camera. It actually landed somewhere in Illinois. But it sure was an impressive thing to see. As I was driving on, some guy called it in on the radio and they were making jokes that perhaps he needed to adjust his tin helmet and wondering if the Star Trek convention was in town.

        So I'm off work next week for a nice, relaxing few days and I've got the beginnings of a cold AND space debris is going to land on me? TYPICAL. Thanks, NASA.

          I've been hearing about this...kinda scary that they can't pinpoint the area at least a little more...I saw some space junk come down once also (in south florida). Not sure where it landed, but it was an amazing fireball

            My 14 yo niece told me about this yesterday. She is more informed than I am

            So this means I can't be without my camera from now until the end of October ... just in case

              Well, from now until it falls down. Unless you want to carry the camera around to the end of October.....

                If I've learned anything from HBO if I get hit with space debris or otherwise weird things from the sky then I get to become a reaper.

                    I 'think' the story on NPR put the odds of it hitting a human at one in 30,000. The odds of hitting any specific person (as in, you) put it well into the one in the trillions. They interviewed a woman (from Missouri, I think) who is the only person EVER to be hit by a piece of space junk. A piece of mesh brushed her shoulder when she was walking home one night.

                    Your odds of getting killed by a meteor? About once every thousand years or so? I think I once read it was one in ten trillion.

                    The last official episode was in 1954. Mrs. E. Hulitt Hodges, Alabama. Napping on her sofa when a large chunk of a meteor crashed through the roof, bounced off a large radio, and smacked her on the leg, leaving a very large and severe bruise. She survived.

                    Her sofa didn't.

                      The article says that if you find any debris you should leave it alone and contact authorites. Still NASA property, can't sell it, blah blah blah — fair enough. I read a different article about this that mentioned, along with those reasons, that you shouldn't touch it because it might have sharp edges. Thanks for the vote of confidence there, NASA.

                        I say finders keepers. NASA threw it out, it's up for grabs.

                          I wouldn't touch one just in case this happened
