Sky Watch #42
The team that keeps Sky Watch Friday going week to week does a superb job for us. Thanks guys!
I'm excited this week! My photos aren't the greatest in the world, but they are exciting to me. It's been such a long time since I saw a rainbow. On Earth Day, April 22nd, we had more rain most of the day. In late afternoon it stopped, and the sun shone brightly for a while. All of a sudden it started raining again, but the sun was still shining. I half-heartedly went out to the deck in back on the off chance that there was a rainbow. I was disappointed. The cloud cover was just too dense to see anything else. Don't know why I even bothered to open the front door, but I did - and there it was! I ran for the camera, and got these. Two minutes later, the clouds had covered it from that view too.
The second one is pretty fuzzy. It started raining really hard, and I guess I rushed it.
