Sky Watch Friday (on Thursday)


I'm jumping the gun here a bit. Tom doesn't even have Sky Watch up on his site (Wiggers World) yet. But check it out later, and you can see all the other Sky Watch photo links. They're really cool!

Anyway, Beth and I are getting ready to head out of town to a homeschool conference! Wahoo!!! I am so excited! This is my "jump start" for the year. I fill my tank with informative conference speakers, seeing the hundreds of other homeschoolers that attend (I'm not the only one!), seeing the well over 200 vendors in the exhibit hall, and perusing the used curriculum sale. Some people like going to sports events...give me BOOKS! :o)

So, with that all said. Here is my Sky Watch photo of the week:

This was the eclipse we witnessed several months back. This shot was taken from my back deck.


Here's another shot. Although it's blurry, I love that it shows the more vibrant color!


Have a great weekend, all!

Have fun at the conference! Mine was last weekend and a blast! I learned a lot and my brain is still feeling full trying to digest it all! Can't wait to hear how yours went.

I've nipped over now and I'll post the link for you later... these are my first pictures this week and I do like them, I missed this happening because of cloud cover.. so it is great to see them here. Hope your meeting went well and you got books galore.. :O)

Thanks for being a part of Sky Watch this week.

Great Sky Watch.
Sports cost too much. See on TV.
Books are cheap and knowledge is forever.

Come visit,
