Beautiful Sunset, But No Snow

It got cool, this afternoon. At 11:00 am it was 61ยบF. And then the temperatures started to plunge. By the time I picked up Sara, the temperatures dropped to 40ยบF. A strong wind brought the cold front in. Some neighboring cities had snow flurries. But we weren’t as lucky. While I made hot cocoa for the girls, the Sun peeked through the clouds, right before sunset. Well, we’ve got rewarded with a little bit of sun at the end of the day.

We’ve got rewarded with a nice sunset, this evening.

Luna & The Planets

Since last weekend, I keep an eye on the Moon, Mars and Jupiter. Last Sunday, the two planets almost “touched” each other, they were so close from our view on Earth. The view distance was less than half of the Moon diameter.ย  This morning, the Moon was in a perfect position to capture a photo of all three celestial objects.

Luna, the Red Planet, and the Gas Giant danced together in today’s morning sky.

I always shrink my pictures to a medium size. Therefore you really can’t see Mars in this photo. For a better photo view, you might like to check out my link on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/132943299@N07/38735737935/in/album-72157686994312444/
