Sky Watch



This was taken from my front porch. With Memorial Day being this week here in the States, I thought it was appropriate to include our flag.


Another view...


You can check out some other great sky shots at Wiggers World.

***Update*** "Anonymous" mentioned not knowing what Memorial Day is about. Sorry about that for those of you not here in the US! Memorial Day is a national holiday here in the United States. It is observed the last Monday of May, and commemorates our men and women who died while in military service to their country.
