SkyWatch Friday ~ A beautiful morning

There is a show of the Aurora Borealis(northern lights) over most of Canada this week so I decided to sleep out and catch a glimpse of them.  I managed to see the moon rise at 1:30 a.m. and then promptly went to sleep until just before sunrise at 5:50 a.m.!  I went to make a coffee and by the time a got back the sun had risen!

Looks like your coffee cup is being doused with the glow of sunrise while mine was filled with drizzle. Curious about the little creature (artifact?) to the left of the cup … almost looks like a real crab.

I hope you get to see the aurora borealis, Carolyn! I fear I am too far south for these. I have seen them here in the past but on the news I heard it would be unusual for someone below 50° to see these this week. I'm at just below 45°. Well, like you I'd probably fall asleep anyway.

Is that a crab next to the coffee mug?
We thought we might catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights down here, but the night was overcast, so no go.
No lights for you, either. Maybe tonight you can stay awake!
You did capture a beautiful sunrise and sunset.

Although you missed the northern lights you certainly got a beautiful sunrise for coffee. Someday, I want to be in Alaska and watch those magical lights. Sure hope you get to see them another night, maybe a daytime nap so you can stay up later.

Absolutely stunning! I'm so sorry you fell asleep...I was hoping to see those lights too, and I just might yet, if our smoky skies clear.

I see the haze from the smoke where you are as well. I hope the rains have taken care of that.

That sunrise is reward enough for staying out all night. Better luck soon - if you decide to do it again!

Barb said...
