Happy Friday! I had nothing planned for this Friday’s Fave post. This week has been pretty much a grind. But then…
This morning, around 6AM, as my man and I were out before dawn doing our normal weekday workout, the sky caught his notice. Because we almost never watch local news reports, we were completely unaware that Spacex was planning a manned launch this morning at 5:49 AM. It was the unmistakable signs in the sky that clued us in to what was happening.
Phone cameras are generally not the best tools to use when capturing photos of the night sky, but that was all we had on us, so that’s what we used. These are subpar to be sure, but hopefully they provide a hint of the dazzling effects of the launch on our pre-dawn sky.
I made an obligatory joke that the aliens have finally arrived. Afterward, we began to watch the skyline change over the next several minutes. A few minutes later, it looked like this:
The last photo we took was the beautiful distilling of the clouds and light as they interacted with the wind:
The pre-dawn sky is always lovely, but this was a especially striking.
Happy Friday. I hope to continue our dive into Fault Lines on Monday.
