The sphere has always held a special interest to me. When I was 13 years old, – around the summer of 1965, my brother, and several childhood friends – out for and evening stroll, witnessed what had to be an exploding star – it turned the baseball field, at the camp we were crossing in, brighter than day – and when I looked up to the heavens – a blue white day-like sky quickly the light turned into a receding and darkening halo – like a circle of prism reflection in the night sky. The light ring (brighter on the inside than the outside) quickly shrunk to the size of a large planet and disappeared. There is a name for these phenomena, Super Nova. This image has never been lost on me, and I have always been interested in spherical forms every since.
