This was brought to mind by these two pictures I received in an e-mail entitled, "Taken at the right split second."
I have no way of knowing if the above are photoshopped or not. But they would be beautiful to see, and either would be only for a moment or two. We all know that.
I have always wanted to view the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) but that requires being further north in colder weather. LOL
On the way to Alaska, on the ALCAN Highway, we stopped at Whitehorse for an overnight. I noticed a 'tourist trap' called "The Northern Lights" so I suggested an evening out. The show was in an solarium setting, seats leaned back and showing a sky. I expected to see a 3D version or at least a movie of the Northern lights, but got neither, I was very disappointed.
Sky and space have always interested me. I wish there had been astronauts before I quit HS. Maybe it would have been an incentive to finish school and attend college. I would love to be an astronaut.
We made an extra effort to see the lift off with John Glenn aboard as an old man. I loved it.
Now, seeing the above cloud, you might scream Tsunami! Looking can you guess how much that cloud weighs? Okay an estimate, it is Over a million pounds, or 100 Elephants! I looked it up!
A strange sky today, note the straight line, this is actually what we saw. We were on our walk with Stella to catch lightening bugs.
That straight line was in the sky, I have never seen that before.
Most boys my age will remember the 1957 Studebaker Hawk. One of the most striking cars of the 1950's.
