Sky Watch Friday

The sun spreads a baby blanket across the sky--soft baby blue and warm baby pink. With a little squinting the retreating pink jet stream should come into view.

“The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” ~ John Muir

You asked if I've seen "Lions for Lambs." No I haven't, but from your reaction I guess I should, eh?
