Evening Belt of Venus

Evening Belt of Venus

Thomas chose the perfect time to bark at invisible intruders in the back field. I went to see what was there (nothing), and saw the eastern sky had turned pink.

I timed my coffee break perfectly again this morning. The western sky was beautiful.

Coffee Break

Job Security

I went to get coffee and check the eastern sky. Bupkis. But I saw that the incoming table in acquisitions was full of books waiting to be unboxed and processed. We call that job security.

Then I looked at the western sky.

What a beautiful Belt of Venus!

Coffee Time

If it’s time to make coffee, that means it’s time to look at the sky.

I got up to get coffee, and my good timing was rewarded with a pretty sky view.

What a gorgeous morning! It was cloudy when I was out with the dog this morning, so I didn’t think the sky would be very interesting when the sun came up, but I was wrong.

The View from the Break Room

Belt of Venus from the Break Room

I like to take sunrise photos from the break room. No one is in there early in the morning, so I can turn off the lights. But the western view isn’t as good. The building and trees block most of the sky. No construction cranes visible from this window, either.

Belt of Venus with a Band of Clouds

This was the view to the west this morning, just before the sun rose. A thin band of clouds intensified the pink of the Belt of Venus.

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow from Wells Library #rainbow #doublerainbow #atmosphericoptics #sky #skies #indianaskies #bloomington #iubloomington #indianauniversity #lookup

On my way to work this morning, I saw an enormous flash of cloud-to-cloud lightning in the western sky. And then, after the sun rose, there was a gorgeous double rainbow. The sky in the west was still dark with storm clouds, but the sun was shining brightly on the buildings, and off in the distance there were occasional streaks of lightning.

Not a bad way to start the day.
