Moonset and Sunrise in the Emerald City

Welcome followers and visitors! Earlier this morning we looked out our little window on the world to find clear skies and the full moon setting. We were lucky to catch the sight as the moon was getting near the horizon and slipping down between the skyscrapers. Below, a couple of photos show the scene. Then, a while later, the rising sun is nicely reflected in Two Union Tower. Thankfully, Two Union's exterior is largely like a mirror that shows us what's going on in the eastern sky, which is not part of our window's view. Most of you probably live in areas where clear skies are common, but not so much so here in the Emerald City. So, the combination of sun, moon, and sky conditions made it all pretty special.





As always, thank you for stopping by John's Island.
