SkyWatch: while the city sleeps


Last Sunday I visited the Cathedral in St. Paul and took this photo of the sunrise from the steps of the church. The Excel Center is in the foreground with a bit of marquee showing.
Above the cathedral the moon was slowly fading; and the air was clear and cold.

See more sky views from all over our planet at SkyWatch Friday.

My, if I didn't know better I would think I was in Sacramento, CA. The cathedral looks so like the one there.

came via SWF.

That chimney, I hope it is not polluting the atmosphere.

The skeleton of the tree is nice.
