Wait, is the eclipse on the 25th, or on Saturday? Today (Friday) is the 25th. :/

Those are so impressive, Lana. It made me think of werewolves and the full moon! The first one looks like it's right from a Lon Chaney movie.

I wish we could see more sky action. But between the trees and overcast skies, we don't get to see much.

Lana Gramlich said...

Rick; Thanks. :)

celticmusicfan; Sorry about the laptop problems. Hope things are functional again now!

v; I was going to get up for the eclipse, but it was going to be RIGHT on the horizon at around 5:15am, so I wasn't even sure we'd be able to see it (& I've REALLY needed sleep lately!)

Dave Coulter; Lots going on everywhere, of course. That's the sky for you! *L*

Travis; I hear you. I used to be prolific about it, but then again, I worked nights for 14ish years (mostly outdoors.)

Ali; Me, too. Not enough people just look UP from time to time!

I used to be more into astronomy.I plan to buy a telescope again as soon as I can.There should be some meteors to see this montha and the big shower is coming up mid-august.
Thanks for the update.

Larry; Yes, the Perseids start Aug. 11th. Going out to view them one night I was pleasantly surprised by the Northern Lights at the same time. Despite it being 4am, I had to wake up my mom to see it, too.
