Sky Watch Thurs/Friday

I took these on 6-18-08 Click on photos for better viewing



I was in the house when i looked out the window to see that almost the same formation was still there but now with color, and i also thought these 3 little clouds looked a lot like flying saucers

Those cloud formations are really unusual - I'm not sure I've seen any like that!

Happy SWF! We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened... mine's up too hope you can drop by.

Dewdrop said...

Holy (ahem) Cow! Soucoupes en vol!, Flying saucers! Adjust your tinfoil hats and call NASA!


For Sky Watch over at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo, we have a dance between the moon and the fog at midnight.

I like the third one; it's like when you pull off a piece of cotton candy and twist it a little.

Kay said...

This is so cool! The clouds do indeed look like little flying saucers.

chrome3d said...

Oh, excellent altocumulus lenticularis pics! Those clouds travel very slowly and there is usually quite clear air with no other clouds. It´s good to follow them a long time as the forms might change to quite odd and interesting.

Nita said...

Those are beautiful shots! Thanks for sharing! My very "first" entry is up as well. Hope to see you there!

Very nice photos. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate the feedback.

TSannie said...

LOVE your pictures. It amazes me that you can take a picture directly into the sun and still have a great photo! Discovered that myself when I was up in the Lake Champlain area visiting a friend. Thought I'd just try it - and it worked! I was amazed.

Thank you so very much for stopping by to see me - you can't know how much I appreciate that!

SWF - it's the best!
