Ever since I joinoed Sky Watch I got pretty OC with snapping sky photos. I do it all the time, walking in the park, getting my groceries, or riding in cars. And I become manic. I shoot and shoot and drive my husband crazy by my constant snapping. As a result I have quite a few of sky shots in my archive. So I was pretty dismayed to find these images still sitting there.
We were driving home from a camping trip in Lake Shasta on a hot, dry California summer . I am not sure now if this was in I-5 or in Hwy 505. The sky was particularly pretty that day.
And in my skywatching I noticed something in the sky I haven’t seen before. I don’t know what it was. I begged my husband to look up and see if I was seeing what I was seeing. But he was more interested in driving. As you can see from the first image, there was hardly any traffic that time so he could take a peek, but he didn’t see it.
And so I took a closer shot, maxed out my zoom capability. Only when we uploaded it on the computer did my husband see that I saw. Can anyone help in identifying this “phenomenon”?
