San Diego Sunset

I haven't blogged in a while. Tucson has been dreadful this summer for observing and photographing. But I am getting ready to redo the layout of this blog and try to get back into things this fall.
Right now at I am at a meeting in San Diego. I was able to hit Sunset Cliffs tonight for sunset (of course!) Nice sunset with a strong mirage and several green flashes breaking off the top. Not going to say much more, just post the pics. IMG_8519IMG_8410IMG_8398IMG_8386IMG_8383IMG_8380IMG_8312

Thank you for sharing with us. Gorgeous, as always. I love the way the sun becomes distorted as it sets.

gorgeous, but I have to ask, what is the dark thing in the 1st picture that looks like a falling cow?

At first, I thought it was a falling man, lizardmom. It's a bird, I think: beak to the left and wings up.

Beautiful pictures, hale.

I understand that they've discovered an extraterrestrial who likes to expose himself. They call him the Green Flasher.

Hey Boppster nice pics.

I have to ask, what causes the green?
