Sky Watch Friday


After a week which included gales and clouds and rain, this Thursday evening proved to be exactly the same as last week. A completely clear sky and an eye-searing sunset.

This was my Sky Watch for last week. Note the clear golden sky and the power pole on the left.

This week I took another photo from exactly the same position and guess what.

Someone had moved the sun!

The position of that power pole and the double pine tree where the sun set last week is clearly visible. At this time of the year the sun gallops across the horizon.

  14. GORGEOUS color! I know what you mean about the sun this time of year– it makes it extra challenging to try to scope out photo spots beforehand.


  15. I’ve noticed this “galloping” in the morning lately–the sun seems to be rising behind a new house every day. Thanks for posting both shots to show just how fast this happens.
