There you go. No charge!
Incredible. I love the perspective and the contrast.
Of COURSE there’s a charge – there’s ionized solar wind all over that photo, off in the distance.
See, there, and there by the cloud. And there.
Thank You very much.
Thank You. Breathtaking.
In return, head on over to Sign on San Diego for a bunch of rain clouds. Great heaping piles of gray storm clouds. Just thought I’d return the favor. :)
Hey, thanks. I was down to the crumbly bits in my pockets and couldn’t afford my own sunset.
Thank you. I really did need that.
Thank you sir! Simply amazing!
It is currently thundery and lightningy *KABOOM* in this corner of Southern California I am sitting in (Thousand Oaks). And a bright flash and six seconds and KABOOM so it’s about a mile and a half away. And a metric buttload of rain.
You look like you could use some comic relief:
What? Sunset again? We just had one yesterday. Hmph.
Thank you, but next time, could I request a little more purple?
I so needed that right now. I love the rain, but sometimes you just want a pretty sky to end the day.
Just what we needed. Wonderful.
Where would we be without Earth’s rotation, I ask you?
wow. who knew mount doom was in Ohio?
Mel@16: You’re looking west. That’s actually Indiana.
Hmmm. That’s why I see Tom Bombadil in my backyard…. up in NE OH….
Beautiful Ohio…. not only run by a dairy government, but styled as the new Middle Earth.
Mount Doom in Indiana? I would believe that. I’ve met enough people in Kokomo who were orc-like.
Last night around 7:30, Jupiter was directly under the Moon relative to the horizon. It looked like a picture out of 2001: a Space Odyssey. I tried to get a picture, but I was thwarted by my lack of photography skills. You can check out my feeble attempt here.
Damn you, Scalzi. I was just saying my phone needed a different wallpaper . .
It is a nice sunset but without mountains, or even hills, well, it is still Ohio and hence BORING and FLAT. At least import some hillocks or large rocks. Maybe build a roller coaster.
Why, yes I did. Thank you!
Hey, thanks John. I have no idea how you knew I needed one right now. Just wow!
