Skywatch Friday 11-28-08

November 26, 2008


Wow!  I had to pull into a parking lot before these changed color


But they did change color as I stood there


And still vibrant they began to stretch across the western sky


Meanwhile, the eastern sky had darkened and a flying saucer shaped cloud appeared above the trees. 

This last shot was black when I downloaded it from the camera.  I used auto enhance in PhotoShop and — there was the cloud I’d been trying to shoot — along with some light spots previously invisible to this mere mortal.

The skies are lovely around the world at

I’m posting this early because it’s so lovely AND because I might forget tomorrow evening in the midst of the festivities.  I’ll link to Skywatch when I remember.

    These are lovely photos, and amazing colors in the sky. The last one was cleverly done. Isn’t it fun to see what we can do with our shots to make them visible? Great job!
