Looking skyward

Updating the update - here is the best I can apparently do - last year I was able to find a website that had a live camera(obviously hooked to a telescope) showing the meteor shower but I haven't found that one this year - here is a bit of info and it really IS something spectactular to watch - catch a nap and then be up after midnight and the closer to dawn - the better the viewing will be
UPDATE: August 12th is the peak night for viewing the Perseids Meteor Shower for 2008 - I'll add a link to more information tomorrow-the definition of tomorrow might be a bit vague - but I'll get something up before Tuesday morning ! The meteor shower is usually long and heavy enough to be clearly visible anywhere in North America (lower 48) . Back to the original post
How cliche is this posting? I love to look at the sky - taking pictures just gives me a chance to share - (hey Paula at Fraker Farm - this blog is especially for you!) Crescent moon, pink fluffy clouds - all very pretty. Glad for beauty - this summer we are hoping for some big heavy rain clouds! What do you think about the bottom picture? on another website I asked what people thought they saw - most were variations on an angel with something else. Looking toward the sky is one of our quiet joys here on Buhlaland - it is good.

Again, Linda Sue, great photos. I love the last one. I do agree, I definately see the angel. Gorgeous!

Hi Lindasue, sitting out and watching the afternoon sky is one of our favorite things to do also. Every afternoon sky holds something different. It's as if God takes a brush and says, "behold, look at this one I painted tonight!" I especially love the pink! It really makes you count your blessings, doesn't it? blessings, Kathleen

I love sky pictures! Josh and I try and end our days by looking up at the sky and trying to figure out the cloud shapes. Sometimes we spin around in the pool on our floats in silence -- just holding hands and watching the stars appear.

Oh that's just gorgeous Linda Sue!!! I'm sorry it took me so long to see this... I think this is the first time I've been on the computer since last week! It's funny- I put a picture of a sunset on my blog this morning... great minds really do think alike, don't they!! (tee hee)
