Sky Watch Season # 4 Episode # 24

Sky Watch Friday this is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link a 3:00 PM EDT on Thursdays. SWF is run by Klaus, Louise, Wren, Sandy, Sylvia and myself.


I will show you yesterday's sunrise for 20 minutes as I traveled East.


The red in the cloud was from the sun coming up in the East.


This dark cloud became so much lighter as the sun approached the horizon.

It looked like the cloud wanted to engulf the sun as it approached the horizon. Can you see a face in the cloud?


The sun finally crested the hill and took over as the cloud backed off. What a great face in the clouds.


I hope you all have a great holiday season and the "Son" has risen for your Christmas.
