Skywatch Friday:  Holy Crap!


Holy crap!  That's what I said.  I was upstairs in my study working on the computer.  I came downstairs and literally thought the house was on fire.  The living room was glowing orange.

Even though the view is southeast, this is sunset over Skagit Bay off South Fidalgo Island about 4:30 PM today.  I normally don't see sunsets because they are way over to the left hidden behind trees.  But on rare occasions I get front-lit sunsets like this.  That orange cloud formed a glowing band over my head from south to north.  This event lasted less than five minutes before it was completly gone.  Luckily, the camera was ready to go.

  2. Hi Dave, sorry the holy crap caught my eye when scanning through my feeder. I bet the glow was awesome. I rarely get to see sunsets as they take place over the mountain. However sometimes a glow extends way over. I find it more this time of the year. Well guess a big cold front is coming in. I was in the garden today digging the last of the leeks. We have has a little snow but had melted. We may get a dump this weekend. I am ready to be house bound. Ok that never happens with shoveling when the snows come. Wishing you a happy Fall and many more Holy Crap Sunsets.
