Sky Watch Friday

To view skies from all over the world, or to participate, click on the Logo above.

Thank you to our sponsors who each week work tirelessly to bring us wonderful pictures of skies from everywhere on the globe.

My post today was taken just a couple days ago after several days of dark looming cloud filled skies where we neither got Sunrises or Sunsets of any color..but did get much needed late evening showers.

Sunrise in the East--Early morning.

Sunrise over Bald Rock Mountain..just slightly South of East.
Note the fog still rising from off and behind the mountain.
