Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Well, Steven Spielberg I'm not, but I captured this hole in the sky the other morning after I'd arrived at work. Looks a tad like the spaceship in Close Encounters, doesn't it?

I've been scarce around these here parts, but plan to start visiting y'all again this afternoon. I'm finally done for the year~2009, that is. I took the last 4 days before break off, to spend some time baking cookies, visiting the beach, reading a good book. All those things I don't have time for when I'm grading, grading, grading, which is what I've been doing this week.

Who knows? Maybe I'll find an awesome shell when a N'oreaster blows in?

Happy SkyWatch Friday...

What a fantastic shot! It does look "other worldly"! Being a former teacher I can relate to the "grade, grade, grade".

Enjoy your time off! Have a great holiday!

Wow! That's amazing. We had a similar sky but no big hole in the middle of the clouds. Great capture!

What an interesting weather phenomenon...I've never seen such a thing. Happy Christmas break. All of the teachers in my family have been counting down to this week, as I'm sure you have been, too! Can't wait to read more!

God obviously wanted to see that part of town and wiped the condensation off that part of his "window".

What a perfect title for this most unique sky view ... beautifully captured. Thanks so much for sharing. Glad you're finally getting some time off. I remember how crazy this time of year could be for teachers. I've shared warm beach sunset views from this past week at Happily Retired Gal and Sacred Ruminations this week.
Hugs and blessings,

Dang! That's some shot! I wish I could see something like that upclose. Then again, if the aliens really are planning pn dropping by, I think I'll settle for your wonderfully captured image, Mel! :)
