Astronomical straight lines

It's been kind of cloudy and rainy here of late, so the re-appearance of the Sun on Simchas Torah led to the following exchange:

Not-me: Hey, what's that bright thing in the sky?
Me: Looks like a G2 dwarf.

Another oldie but goodie:

Not-me: What's that stuff coming through the window?
Me: H-minus continuum, mostly.
