Below, the real treats….
The sky that produced such a site.
And the same sky a few minutes earlier, in as much magnificence as I could capture.
And a few minutes later, the same sky, as celestial mechanics begin to remove the lighting, and meteorological effects start carting away the the canvas. The ever changing show moved westward, as it always must.
These pictures were taken within a five minute span of time, sometime last year. My camera says it was from 7:16 to 7:21 PM, February 1, 2013, but that would put this over an hour after sunset, which seems unlikely.
