Skywatch Friday - First Skywatch of Autumn 2019

River2 - sunset

Okay, Summer is over, and Autumn has started, although many of us in the more southern part of the USA are calling it "Hotumn." We are still running our air conditioners but the weather has toned down to where it is pleasant to sit outside in the evenings and watch the sunset. I hope everybody is doing well. I am looking forward to seeing what everybody has for us this week.

Skywatch Friday - 19 September 2019 Edition


We are in the middle of September headed full blast to October and Autumn, cold weather and all the rest. Oh well, we still have the sky. Here in Tulsa I know that we are getting to Autumn when the setting sun starts lining up with the east-west streets. The woman behind me was honking as the light was green but I had a picture to take. You get it, right? I'll try and clean the windshield next time.

Skywatch Friday - Remembering 9-11 Edition

Bixby 9/11 Memorial

This week we remember the attacks  on 11 September 2001 when 2977 innocent people were murdered by Al-Qaida terrorists. A lot has happened since then but suffice to say that the world is a completely different place now than it was then.

Blanket 9-11

I'm glad that I am associated with a group like Skywatch Friday, a peaceful, supportive corner of the internet that draws people together. We need lots more of that now more than ever.

Skywatch Friday - 5 September 2019 Edition - First Post Summer Skywatch

Labor Day is the traditional effective end of summer in the USA. Summer vacations are over, kids are at school, and mom and dad are buckled down laboring away earning money trying to pay for the vacations and summer camps.


But hey the weather is still warm and a little drier, the childless and empty nesters can now venture out and enjoy the off peak pricing and crowds at many places. So for everything there is a season.
