Skywatch - this afternoon

Well, I've started working longer days at work. I used to come in from 8-4, and now I'm supposed to come from 8-5. But alas: the sun sets around 4:30, and I keep missing it! So I've been trying *very* hard to come in early, around 7, with the intention of getting out by 4. Needless to say, easier said than done...


And so, today, I was sitting at my desk around 4:20. Suddenly, I got a call from my friend Dena. "I just wanted to tell you," she said, "that there's some crazy sky stuff going on. I thought you'd want to know."


I grabbed my camera and ran out to the parking lot. The view isn't as unobscured as the one from my balcony at home, but still, not bad:


Wow, right? Click on the photo to get an even better view.


What can I say? Thank you, Dena! It's good to have friends, and especially ones who look up :) Here's hoping that I'll get better at scheduling my time, and won't need to employ spies...

Happy Skywatching, everyone! Have a great weekend!
