Skywatch Friday-Star

Wow I managed to take a photo of a star. This star was so bright and big and using my inexpensive camera and zooming on it, I was surprised that the camera could take shot of the star.

This video was taken two days ago. You could see a quick flash of the lightning and the sound of thunder roaring so fiercely. It was raining so heavy. I was afraid to continue taking video cause it is not safe to be standing near the window. No chance of taking photos of lightning.

I think its neat taking pictures of stars.

I am still around, I am hoping to have my old site back as soon as google figures out what they are doing. I am keeping a low profile until then, well I was out of town then got sick also.

Oh boy Alice..what a catch and you did a great job on the video clip. It did sound like a very heavy storm. My cats hate thunder and go and hide in the closet....Michelle

Jim, I hope you are better now. Someone decided to steal your blog when you are not around, now I think I better backup my entire blog. Hope you get your old blog back.

It was raining cats and dogs indeed the past 2 days. You're right, shouldn't be standing too close to the window..you never know when accidents will happen.

Happy Weekend Alice :)
